Orange & Cranberry Cookies

1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup cranberries
1/4 cup mixed peel
2.5 oz caster sugar
Grated zest of 1 orange
2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl, then rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in fruit, sugar and zest. Add eggs, stirring together, until you have a stiff dough.
Place walnut-sized mounds of the mixture on a greased baking tray, leaving space for spreading between each one. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
