Come on, it's cold - what else am I supposed to do?
Combine dry ingredients:
250g self-raising flour
about half a teaspoon allspice
250g butter, softened
a handful or two of dried cranberries (I soaked them in orange juice for a bit first).
a couple of table spoons of liquid (I used the orange juice from the soaking)
Pour batter into tin, place pecans over the top.
Bake in about 175 degrees C, approx 20 min.
Oh, and I wasn't the only person busying myself in the kitchen...
