Fancy a shortbread with your cup of tea? Why not try and make these Cranberry and Orange Shortbread!


30 biscuits

Total time

40 minutes






  • 60 g cranberries ((dried))
  • 1 orange zest
  • 360 g plain flour
  • 110 g caster sugar (Plus extra for sprinkling over)
  • 125 g margarine/unsalted butter
  • icing sugar (for dusting)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / gas 4. Prepare your lined baking tray.
  2. Beat the sugar, butter and orange zest together until you get a nice smooth mixture.
  3. Stir in the flour with a wooden spoon, until your mixture turns to a paste. It will go very crumbly but will eventually come together. Using your hands gently work the dough into a ball, you might want to do it a bit at a time, I found doing this much easier.
  4. Roll your dough out gently and sprinkle the dried cranberries on then roll over with your rolling pin.
  5. Cut out with a cutter of your choice and sprinkle with a bit more sugar. Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes until light golden brown.
  6. Put them to cool on a metal wire rack. Once cooled dust with icing sugar.
  7. Enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee!
