  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 3/4 pound unsalted butter cold, diced
  • 4 extra-large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup heavy cream cold
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1 cup dried cranberries


  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and orange zest.
  • Add the cold butter and mix at the lowest speed until the butter is the size of peas.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, heavy cream, and orange extract.
  • With the mixer on low speed, slowly pour the wet mixture into the flour and butter mixture.
  • Mix until just blended. The dough will look lumpy!
  • Mix the cranberries into the batter.
  • Using your hands (it's more fun this way), make balls of dough that will fill your teacups about 3/4 full. (Make sure the teacups are oven safe!)
  • Drop the balls of dough in the cups.
  • Place cups on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 F for about 20 minutes or until the tops are slightly browned.
