Difficulty: Normal

Prep: 25 minutes


  • 2 cups of flower
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons of COLD butter (the colder the better!)
  • 1/2 cup Graceland dried cranberries. (This can be substituted for any Graceland dried fruits you fancy!)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg


  • Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • In a medium bowl, mix flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Grate butter into flour mixture on the large holes of a box grater; use your fingers to work in butter (mixture should resemble coarse meal), then stir in Graceland cranberries.

  • In a small bowl, whisk sour cream and egg until smooth.

  • Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. (The dough will be sticky in places, and there may not seem to be enough liquid at first, but as you press, the dough will come together.)

  • Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7- to 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp. of sugar. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on a cookie sheet (preferably lined with parchment paper), about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature.

  • Get a good quality jam and clotted cream. Serve in whichever order you see fit. Serve warm for best results!
