This is an old English recipe. It sounded yummy! It called for raisins soaked in brandy, but I did not have that either, so I used crasins.
3/4 cup dried cranberries, finely chopped
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
Mix all ingredients until a smooth, thin-ish glaze is made
Preheat oven to 400.
In a large bowl, combine flours, (I did not have any whole wheat flour, I missed out on some of the chewy-ness because I just used all pastry flour) cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, salt and sugar.
Cut in butter with a pastry blender or your fingers till it forms crumbs.
Blend in eggs, vanilla and cranberries till it forms a dough
Roll out onto a lightly floured board. Cut out with a two inch cookie cutter and place on a parchment covered cookie sheet
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.
Dip warm cookies in glaze and let dry on cooling rack.
