Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Using a pastry cutter or a wide flat knife, cut in the butter until it looks like pea-sized crumbs. Add 2/3 cup of half and half until it moistens. Fold in the cranberries.

On a floured surface, knead the dough gently approximately 7 times. Use a floured roller to get to 1-inch thick. Cut into 8 circles using a cookie cutter. Brush the tops with remaining half and half and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
