Step 1

Cream together the butter and sugars then beat in the egg, water, vanilla and spices. Don't panic if it curdles, it'll sort itself out. Stir in the rest of the ingredients then roll into balls in your hands - about walnut sized. I squish them flat (a bit less than 1cm thick) onto trays lined with baking parchment. Bake at Gas 4 / 180 degrees C for 15-20 minutes. They'll still be slightly soft so leave on the trays for a few minutes before cooling on a rack.
