Prep Time



Total Time






2 1/2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
teaspoons baking powder
cup sugar
teaspoon salt
tablespoons cold butter
cup whipping cream
teaspoon vanilla
cup dark chocolate chunks
cup dried cherries
teaspoon water
  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray.
  2. In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture forms coarse crumbs. In medium bowl, beat 1 of the eggs with fork. Stir in whipping cream and vanilla. Stir in chocolate chunks and cherries until combined. Pour over crumb mixture; stir just until moistened (do not overmix).
  3. Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 4 times; pat into 7-inch circle, about 1 inch thick. Transfer to cookie sheet. In small bowl, beat remaining egg; stir in water. Brush egg mixture lightly over top of dough; discard any remaining egg mixture. Cut into 8 wedges; separate slightly so wedges aren’t touching.
  4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 10 minutes. Serve warm.
