    Marion Librarian's Note:

    Found this on a blog entitled "In praise of leftovers", and the author adds "I suppose you could form these into about 6 individual cakes, but the dough is quite wet, so I'd advise sticking with a cake round for ease. I used a sharp knife or bench scraper to score the dough into 8 wedges before baking baking it. The lines will be faint when it comes out of the oven, but still very helpful for slicing it."

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6-8

    Yield:

    wedges

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 450 and butter an 8" round cake pan.
    2. 2
      In a food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter into about 8 pieces, add to flour mixture, and pulse until pea-sized clumps form.
    3. 3
      Beat egg and half-and-half together and add to flour mixture. Pulse just until combined. Mixture will be quite wet.
    4. 4
      With floured hands, gather into a ball and press into prepared pan, building up the edges a little bit. Sprinkle liberally with baker's sugar and bake in preheated oven for 15-18 min until lightly browned and just done in the center.
    5. 5
      Let cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing into wedges and removing from pan.
