How to make it

  • * The key to this whole process is to NOT melt the butter and shortening and NOT turn the whole thing into smooth consistent dough.
  • ** Preheat oven to 450 F.
  • 1. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder, and vanilla sugar in a large bowl.
  • 2. Throw butter and shortening into the dry mix and chop into aproximately 1/4 inch chunks in the flour allowing it to freely get mixed into the whole shabang.
  • 3. Using your fingertips (as quickly as possible) smoosh and mix the butter/shortening chunks with the flour until they're roughly similar sized flakes.
  • 4. Toss in the finely chopped cranberries and toss until evenly mixed (also as quickly as possible)
  • 5. Make a well in the middle of the flour, pour in chilled milk and QUICKLY mix it all together with your hand in a circular motion. The dough should be sticky. Don't over mix it.
  • 6. Using a soft rubber spatula, scrape the dough onto a floured surfce and fold the dough 5-6 times without further "MIXING" the dough.
  • 7. Press the dough into 1 inch flat sheet and cut into circles with a cup/glass. The top and bottom of the circular dough should not be sticky anymore due to the light powdering of flour.
  • 8. Place the biscuits onto an un-greased baking sheet and bake until risen and golden on top.
  • 9. Pull out of the oven, take off the top and enjoy with a smidge of butter! Oh … watching the butter melt into the biscuit is just heavenly.
  • PS. Don't forget your coffee, I think its ready!

    Nice cinnamon flavor. In the oven and baking, turned around to find the cranberry bits still laying on the counter. :(
