Serves 8| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, chilled and cut into a 1/4-inch dice
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream, plus 1 tablespoon for brushing
  • 1 cup (about 4 ounces) grated Cheddar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425° F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives held crisscross fashion, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 2/3 cup of the cream. Add the Cheddar and chives and use your hands to combine; the dough should be crumbly. Knead the dough a couple of times until it comes together.
  3. Gently pat it into a ball, then flatten slightly into a 1-inch-thick disk. Transfer to a baking sheet. Slice into quarters, then cut each quarter in half. Brush the top with the remaining cream. Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
