Easy preparation and cooking time.
Never make enough!
Delicious little biscuits, handy to have for those unexpected guests.
50g unsalted butter
100g self-raising flour
1 tsp ground mixed spice
50g light muscovado sugar
85g pack dried cranberries
1 small apple, halved, cored and finely sliced
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp milk
icing sugar, to serve.
Heat your ove to 180C and lightly oil a baking sheet. Rub together the butter and flour with your fingertips to fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the rest of the ingredients until you have a soft dough.
Drop 8 tbsp or 16 tsp of dough onto the baking sheet, spacing out well. Bake for 20 mins until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, and dust with plenty of icing sugar. Pack into an airtight container. Will keep fresh for a few days.
