sugar, caster 50 g (2 oz)
cream, double 30 ml (2 tbsp)

flour, plain white 15 g (0.5 oz)
chocolate, dark plain pieces 125 g (4 oz)

Christmas recipe instructions:

Take the almonds and crush slightly. Prepare roughly cut pieces of cherries.

Prepare a solution of sugar in the butter and bring to the boil. Away from the heat, mix in flour, almonds, cherries, sultanas, mixed peel, sunflower seeds and cream.

Grease a sheet of baking paper and place heaped teaspoonful amounts of the mixture from step 2 onto it ensuring there is enough room for expansion during cooking.

Bake till the edges are golden brown. 180 degrees centigrade (gas mark 4, 350 F). About 7 minutes. Take out of the oven and use a plain large metal biscuit cutter to make rounds by pushing into the biscuits. Bake again until golden brown.

Cool for a couple of minutes before removing to a wire rack for complete cooling.

Repeat steps 3-5 for the remaining mixture from step 2.

Prepare melted chocolate by heating in a bowl over water at boiling point. Then take each biscuit and dip it into the choclate so all the edge is covered. Place on non-stick paper till cooled.
