Directions:
In a medium bowl combine flour, corn meal, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda.
Add the cold butter cubes and squeeze with your fingers into the mix, until grainy and crumbly.
Add the dried cranberries, milk, orange peel and walnuts, stir with a fork.
Preheat oven to 450
Flour a flat surface for rolling, gather up the dough into a ball and gently knead about 10 times. Dough should be pliable, not sticky.
Roll out dough to about 1/2" thick. With a biscuit cutter ( I use about a 3" wide heart shape cutter), cut out dough and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes until lightly golden.
Serve warm with powdered sugar or drizzle with a mixture of 2 parts orange juice to 1 part powdered sugar
