Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/3 cup sugar or other sweetener

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup coconut oil and 2/3 cup 2% milk mixed

1/2 frozen, then slightly thawed and chopped) cranberries

3 drops Wild orange Essential Oil or orange extract

1/4 cup yogurt or sour cream

1 large egg

1 tsp. cinnamon

Directions

adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, sweetener, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

In a small bowl, whisk sour cream and egg until smooth. Add to coconut oil and milk mixture.

Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the bowl into a ball. (The dough will be sticky in places, and there may not seem to be enough liquid at first, but as you press, the dough will come together.)

Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7- to 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp. of sugar. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles; place on a cookie sheet (preferably lined with parchment paper), about 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Cool

I have made these with Blueberries, apples, and even without any fruit.They are always good! The original recipe called for 8 Tsp. of cold butter. I use coconut oil and milk to reduce fat slightly. They are yummy either way you chose.
