Preheat oven to 400F. Add the following to a food processor fitted with blade:

2 1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon baking powder

zest from 1 lemon

1/2 cup crystallized ginger, broken into small pieces

1 stick butter cut into tablespoon size pieces

Blend until dough looks like course sand.

Add 2/3 cup heavy cream and continue blending until dough just comes together. Add additional cream by the tablespoon if needed.

Triangles can be frozen and baked as needed.
