2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel (we used dried but think dried should be doubled)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup dried cranberries, finely snipped
1 8-ounce container orange yogurt or vanilla yogurt
1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, orange peel, salt, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cranberries; toss until mixed. Make a well in center of the flour mixture. Add yogurt all at once to the flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.
Or make drop biscuits and just put approximately 1 inch drops on cookie sheet. Makes life easier and just as tasty.
3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Remove from baking sheet. Serve warm. Makes 10 biscuits.
