    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Beat butter, sugar, vanilla sugar, vanilla extract and eggs together until fluffy.
    3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Fold into the creamed butter mixture.
    4. Fold in oats and cranberries. The dough should be fairly firm.
    5. Roll heaped teaspoons of the dough into balls. Place onto an ungreased baking tray, with enough room for them to spread.
    6. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes or until golden. Try not to overbake, otherwise they will be very hard.
    7. Let stand for 2 minutes on the baking tray and then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool. Store in airtight biscuit tins.
