Ingredients 

1/2 pound caster sugar

1 pound butter

1 1/2 pounds plain flour

Cranberries 

Zest of 1/2 a large orange 

Method 

Pre heat oven to 200°c.

Line a flat baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Cream the sugar and butter together and then slowly add the flour and mix until a soft dough forms. Add in the cranberries and orange zest and mix until well combined. 

Roll out the dough onto a floured surface and cut out your desired shapes- I used Christmas themed stars, trees and ‘gingerbread men’! 

Place the shapes onto the lined baking tray and sprinkle with a little bit of sugar. 

Bake for 8-10 minutes, checking frequently.
