Ingredients
  • 2 cups spelt flour (preferably the whole grain spelt)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup mix of cranberries and chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup buttermilk or yogurt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 390.
  2. In a food processor, or by hand, blend flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda. Add butter and blend/mush. Add the cranberries and chopped walnuts. Quickly blend in buttermilk/yogurt so it forms a slightly sticky dough. Dust counter or cutting board with flour. Turn out the dough onto the floured surface and pat out into a circle that is 1-inch thick. Cut, pizza-style, into eight pieces. Put onto a greased or parchment-covered baking sheet and bake 20 minutes. Cool on a rack.
