This recipe comes from my mom. She used to make it a lot during the holidays.

pinch tips: How to Knead Dough


2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 cup shortening
1 t. grated orange peel
3/4 cup orange juice
1 well beaten egg
1 cup fresh cranberries
1/2 cup nuts

Directions Step-By-Step

Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in shortening. Mix peel, juice and egg,
and add to dry ingredients. Mix just to moisten.
Bake at 350 for 60 minutes.
Cool. Wrap and store overnight. Hint: To avoid nuts and berries from sinking
to bottom, add part of the flour mixture to nuts and berries before adding
to batter.
