Recipe by catxx

Simple and oh-so-moreish...these come from Tessa Kiros' delightful cookbook/homage to family, "Apples for Jam". It is best to bake the trays one at a time so total cooking time is for the two trays.


  1. Preheat oven to 190 C (375F), and line two trays with baking paper.
  2. Beat butter and sugar together until smooth.
  3. Mix in egg and vanilla - combine well.
  4. Sift together the flour and baking powder and add a small pinch of salt.
  5. Add the flour to the creamed mixture and beat to make a soft sandy mixture.
  6. Stir in the chocolate and cranberries.
  7. Lightly moisten your hands and roughly roll teaspoons of the mixture into balls.
  8. Place on baking trays approximately 5cm apart, leaving room for flattening and spreading.
  9. Bake one tray at a time for about 12-15 minutes, or until biscuits are golden and darkening around the edges.
  10. Leave to cool on trays.
