    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 9
    2 ¾ c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
    ½ c. plus 3 tbsp Hy-Vee granulated sugar, divided
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee baking powder
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee salt
    6 tbsp. cold Hy-Vee unsalted butter, cut into bits
    2 tbsp. freshly grated orange zest (from 1 medium orange)
    2 tbsp. freshly squeezed orange juice
    1 tsp. minced fresh ginger
    2 c. cranberries, fresh or thawed from frozen
    1 Hy-Vee large egg
    1 large egg yolk
    ½ c. heavy whipping cream


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
    2. In a food processor, pulse flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, butter, zest, orange juice and ginger until mixture resembles coarse meal and transfer to a large bowl.
    3. In a small bowl toss together cranberries and 2 tablespoons sugar. Stir into flour mixture.
    4. In another small bowl lightly beat whole egg and egg yolk; stir in cream. Add egg mixture to flour and cranberry mixture and stir until just combined. Dough will be very crumbly. On a well-floured surface with floured hands, pat dough into a 9-inch square. With a long knife dipped in flour cut into 3-inch squares. Arrange squares 1 inch apart on baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon granulated sugar.
    5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until light golden.
