Pre- heat the oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with a parchment paper or cookie sheet. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat the egg, sugar, essence, zest, oil till well combined. Now stir in the flour and cranberries. Place the mixture on slightly floured surface and knead till smooth.
Now roll the dough into a 10×3 inch rectangle and place in on the prepared baking tray and bake for about 30 minutes or till the dough is slightly firm to touch and golden. Remove and cool the dough completely.
