    • Add butter and mix on low for 2 minutes until butter has broken into slightly smaller pieces.
    • Add eggs, cream, honey and applesauce. Mix until shaggy.
    • Mix in drained raisins and zest until just incorporated.

    • Chill, cut into wedges, egg wash, sprinkle with sliced almonds and sugar crystals.
    • Arrange wedges from two rounds on sheet pan, leaving room for expansion.


    • Bake at 325°F on low convection for 20 minutes.
