Ingredients

  • 4 Cups all purpose flour
  • Cups sugar
  • 2 Tsp baking powder
  • ½ Tsp baking soda
  • 2 Sticks unsalted butter frozen
  • 2 Cups cranberries fresh
  • 1 Cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 Cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 Tsp vanilla extract

Topping

  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tsp water
  • 3 Tbsp sugar coarse for sprinkling

Instructions

  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Using large holes of a grater, grate frozen butter into the flour. Use fingers to work in the butter until it resembles a coarse meal. Stir in white chocolate chips.
  • In separate bowl, whisk together sour cream, eggs, and vanilla until smooth and incorporated.
  • Use a fork to stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large clumps form. Gently stir in cranberries. Use hands to form dough into two even sized balls.
  • If dough is sticky and needs to firm up a bit, wrap dough balls tightly and chill until it's easier to work with, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, line baking sheets with parchment paper. Set oven to 400 degrees F.
  • On a lightly floured, flat surface, pat each dough ball evenly into an 8 inch circle, about ¾ inch thick each. Cut each circle into 8 triangle wedges. Place triangles on lined baking sheets, 1 inch apart.
  • To make the egg wash, lightly beat the egg and water together. Brush the egg wash on top of each triangle. Sprinkle tops with coarse sugar.
  • Bake about 14-17 minutes or just until tops are light golden.
