  • Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the cranberries and thyme, then add the egg mixture to form a soft, slightly sticky dough.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly until smooth.
  • Roll or pat out about 1 cm thick. Cut into rounds with a floured cutter.
  • Lightly knead together the trimmings and cut out more rounds. Place well apart on the baking trays.
