Cranberry & White Chocolate Tea Biscuits

This delicious tea biscuit has only one problem:  it only makes eight big biscuits.  I'm sure you can solve the problem.

1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cups sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 Tablespoons chilled, unsalted butter, cut into pieces
7 Tablespoons half & half or cream
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 cup cranberries*, dried (craisins), fresh or frozen
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Stir flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and butter.   Add half & half, egg, cranberries and white chocolate chips and stir.  The dough will be sticky.  Divide the dough into eighths and place onto a greased baking sheet.  Bake at 400 degrees for 14-16 minutes until golden brown.

*Notes:  I used craisins and served the tea biscuit warm.  Everyone said I should make these biscuits again.  Enjoy!

Heidi made this delicious cake for my birthday. The most moist cake I've ever tasted. She won't give me her secret. I guess I act like I'm two!
