Yields: 10-12


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. of orange zest
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 6 Tbsp. of butter (chilled), cut into small pea size pieces

  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, orange zest, baking powder, and baking soda.

  4. Stir in the cranberries.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the egg and yogurt.
  6. Stir the yogurt mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  7. Dump the dough onto a work surface and “knead” 3-4 times (as much as you can, as it will be very crumbly).

  10. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
