Sift flour into a mixing bowl. Cut butter into cubes and ad to the flour. Rub them together using your fingertips until they resemble bread crumbs.
Mix the spices and salt with egg. Pour these into the flour mixture and add apples and candied cherries (setting aside some for use as toppings). Knead the dough quickly and thoroughly.
Shape into round biscuits and top each with candied cherry halves (if you wish so).
