Ingredients

  • 2/3 c. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 c. sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsps. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh orange zest
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp.) chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups finely chopped rhubarb (about two large stalks)
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries
  • Cooking spray

Directions

  • Combine milk, vanilla and egg; place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Preheat oven to 425-degrees F.
  • Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange zest in a food processor. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk mixture, and pulse until just until moist. Add rhubarb and cherries and mix by hand thoroughly.
  • Turn the dough out onto parchment lined baking sheet and, with floured hands, pat dough into an 8-inch circle (dough will be very sticky). Cut dough into 8 wedges but do not separate. Bake for 20 minutes or until browned. Serve warm.
