  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon-sugar


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; cut in butter until crumbly. In a small bowl, combine the egg, yogurt and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in cranberries. Turn onto a floured surface, knead 6-8 times.
  2. Divide dough in half. Transfer each portion to a greased baking sheet. Pat into an 8-in. circle. Cut each circle into 8 wedges, but do not separate. Brush with milk; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
