IMG_6947

My sister gave me this recipe a while ago and it is so yummy! I converted it to be gluten free with vegan options if your diet requires dairy free, egg free and/or vegan options. I hope you like it!

2 1/2 c. gluten free flour blend (I like this one: http://amzn.to/T0hi09)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter or nondairy butter alternate
2 eggs (alternately use 2 Tbs. flax meal mixed into 6 Tbs. water–allow to sit until it becomes gel-like)

1 1/2 c. dried cranberries
