100 grams butter or margarine, softened
75 mL milk
1 large egg
275 grams plain flour

170 grams pack of Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries
75 grams chopped pecans
50 grams finely chopped crystallised ginger
For the glaze:
350 grams icing sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons milk


Preheat oven to 190°C. Lightly grease baking sheets.

Combine sugar, brown sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl and beat until well mixed. Add milk and egg and beat until smooth. Add flour, baking powder, ground ginger and bicarbonate of soda and beat until well mixed. Gently stir in the Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries, pecans and crystallised ginger.

In a small bowl combine powdered sugar and enough milk for desired glaze consistency and mix well. Drizzle glaze over cooled biscuits.
