Expert Tips

*To substitute for buttermilk, use 1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice plus milk to make 1/2 cup.

**To chop cranberries in food processor, place in processor bowl with metal blade. Cover; process with 10 on-and-off pulses or until all berries are coarsely chopped.

Try creamy white chocolate chunks or white vanilla baking chips in place of the walnuts.
