½ C butter, chilled hard and cut into small
1 t salt
¾ C plus 2 T heavy cream
¾ C peeled and small dice granny smith
¾ grated sharp cheddar cheese


  • Combine flour, soda, sugar and salt. Then, working with either a pastry cutter or your hands, add the chilled butter and work it into the flour mixture until it resembles peas. Add the cream and mix just until incorporated. Don’t over work dough. Gather and empty onto a floured surface and pat together, then flatten. Cut into 2 by 3 ½ inch squares.
