Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine whole wheat and all purpose flours, sugar, baking powder, sage and salt. Using pastry blender or fingertips cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add 3/4 cup (175 mL) of milk while stirring with fork to make soft, slightly sticky dough. Drizzle in more milk, 1 tbsp (15 mL) at a time if necessary. Add cranberries and fold into dough.

Step 3

Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface and knead dough gently about 10 times. Pat dough into 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick rectangle. Cut into 12 and place on prepared baking sheet.

Step 4

Bake for about 13 minutes or until tops are light golden.
