Cranberry-White Chocolate Cornmeal Tea Biscuits

Ingredients
 
Nonstick cooking spray
1/2
cup dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
1 1/2
1/2
cup yellow cornmeal
1/4
cup packed brown sugar or brown sugar substitute* equivalent to 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2
teaspoons baking powder
1/4
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
cup butter
4
ounces white baking chocolate (with cocoa butter), chopped
1
egg white, lightly beaten
1
8 ounce carton light dairy sour cream
3
tablespoons fat-free milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a cookie sheet with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper; set aside. Place cranberries in a bowl; add enough boiling water to cover. Let stand for 5 minutes; drain well. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in drained cranberries and white chocolate. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  2. In a bowl, combine egg white, sour cream, and milk. Add egg white mixture all at once to flour mixture. Using a fork, stir until combined. Drop dough by well-rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and tops are set. Transfer biscuits to wire racks and let cool.
