Author: Kimber


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup Craisins or dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream


  • Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cranberries and almonds in a medium bowl.
  • Add the heavy cream and stir until the mixture comes together in a single ball.
  • Divide the ball into two equal balls and flatten slightly to make 2 discs about 1 1/2 - 2" thick
  • Cut each disc into 6 equal triangles and then spread the triangles out on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Brush the tops with a tiny bit of cream (just enough to moisten) and sprinkle with almonds.
  • Bake at 425?F for 12-14 minutes until the center is just set and the edges are lightly browned.
  • Cool for 2 minutes on a wire cooling rack.
