1.Beat butter, sugar, extract and egg in small bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in sifted flour in two batches.
2.Divide dough in half, knead sifted cocoa into one half; knead rind and craisins into the other half. Using ruler, shape each batch of dough into 4.5cm x 4.5cm x 15cm rectangular bars. Wrap each in baking paper; refrigerate 30 minutes.
3.Cut each bar lengthways equally into three slices. Cut each slice lengthways equally into three; you will have nine 1.5cm x 1.5cm x 15cm slices of each dough.
