 Ingredients List

  • 1/3 c Dried cherries
  • 1/4 ts Cream of tartar
  • 1/2 c Boiling water
  • 1/4 c Butter at room temp.
  • 1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose
  • Flour
  • 1 + 1/2 Tbls. sugar
  • 1 Egg, separated
  • 1/2 tb Baking powder
  • 1/4 c Sour cream

Soak cherries in hot water for 10 minutes & then drain & set aside.
Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender,
cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together the egg yolk, sour cream, cream &
extract. Add this to the flour mixture & stir until a soft dough
forms. Mix in the cherries & then knead the dough lightly on a
floured surface (just until dough can be h&led). Shape dough into a
ball & pat into a 6-inch circle on a greased baking sheet. Cut into
six wedges & brush with beaten egg white & then sprinkle with sugar.
Bake at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes.
