1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries or blueberries or finely chopped dried apricots
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- One large or two medium oranges will yield what is needed for the grated orange zest.
- A pastry blender is made of 5-6 parallel U-shaped steel wires attached at both ends to a handle. It cuts the butter into small pieces so the flour can coat the particles. Two knives may also be used.
