  • Cook time:10 Minutes
  • Prep time:13 Minutes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 425°.

. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 6 ingredients in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cranberries. Add milk and molasses, stirring with a fork (mixture will be very crumbly).

. Turn dough out onto an unfloured surface, and knead until dry ingredients are moist. Pat dough into a 7-inch circle; cut into 8 wedges. Place wedges on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned.
