DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • With a pastry blended cut the butter in to look like coarse crumbs.
  • Gently fold the berries into the flour mixture.
  • In a small bowl combine the cream, beaten egg, and vanilla; mix well.
  • Add this to the flour mixture and stir till just combined; do not overmix.
  • Knead dough gently on a lightly floured board being careful of the berries.
  • Roll or pat into a circle that is about 7" round and about 1 1/2" thick.
  • Cut the circle in half and each half into four pie-shaped wedges.
  • Place on a baking sheet; brush the tops with egg wash.
  • Bake in a 400-425 degree oven on the middle rack; to prevent browning on the bottom, place the cookie sheet on top of another cookie sheet; bake for about 20 minutes or till nicely browned.
  • Best eaten the day they are made.
