Number of Servings: 12


    1 1/3 c sifted all purpose flour
    2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
    1 tbsp sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 c cold butter
    2 eggs
    1/3 cup cream (I use 1% milk, and that's what the nutritional info is using)


Preheat oven to 450
sift first four ingredients together in a large bowl
cut in cold butter with a pastry blender or two knives, until the butter chunks are the size of small peas.

In a separate bowl beat 2 eggs. Set 2 tbsp of this aside for a glaze. Into the remainder beat in the milk/cream

Make a well in the dry ingredients. Pour the liquid into it. combine with a few swift strokes. Handle the dough as little as possible. Place it on a lightly floured board. Pat until 3/4 inch thick. cut with a knife into diamond shapes or wedges. Brush with the reserved egg, and sprinkle with a bit of salt or sugar.

Bake 15 min.
