Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2Stir together first 4 ingredients. Slice butter into small pieces and cut into dry ingredients.
3Mix egg, cream and vanilla, and add to dry ingredients. Knead in fruit, nuts and chocolate. Knead just until incorporated about 6-8 times. Less time kneading is better.

Bake for 15-20 minutes.
