Suitable for vegetarians

Plain flour 250g (9oz)
Ground cinnamon 1 tspSalt a pinch
Unsalted butter 175g (6oz)
Light soft brown sugar 75g (3oz)
Dried cranberries 150g (5oz)

1 Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas 4 and grease a baking sheet.

2 To make the dough, sift the flour, cinnamon and salt into a bowl. Add the butter, cut into pieces, and rub it into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar to the bowl and continue to work the mixture until it starts to bind together. Add the dried cranberries and work the mixture to form a dough.

3 Roll the dough into a sausage shape about 7cm (2¾in) diameter and cut into slices about 1cm (½in) thick and place them on the baking sheets.

4 Bake the cookies in the centre of the oven for 15–20 minutes, until they are starting to turn light golden in colour. Remove from the oven and leave them to cool on the tray for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve the biscuits warm or cold.

If you are unable to find any dried cranberries, use raisins or sultanas in their place.
