Recipe by auntchelle
The best way to describe rock cakes are as an ugly, cake-like, drop cookie. They have a lovely light texture with a crisp outer. I have altered the traditional recipe to include cranberries. These serves are pretty large. Australian measurements used.

DH loved these, I felt they were a tad dry but tasted good with all the fruit. They were nice and crunchy on the outside and soft inside, just like you said! I subed splenda for the sugar on top, worked out nicely Thanks for posting.
