A couple of weeks back we made some delicious cookies, Christmas style. We added the raisins to imitate mince pies, and the cranberries just because we had a surplus.
The end product tastes really spicy, almost like gingerbread, but the sultana\'s and cranberries match with the spice really well.

-75g of caster sugar OR 100g of light brown sugar
-1 tsp of cinnamon

-1 tsp of ground ginger

- lemon zest, to taste
-cranberries, to taste
-sultanas, to taste
