This is again a heavily adapted recipe, the original having appeared in The Listener. All the adult members of our family, including me, have tried these and said “These remind me of something I used to get when I was a kid…” but none of us can come up with what it actually was! Anyway, I find them nice (verging on addictive) so I don’t make them too often because I have a nasty tendency to empty the tin all by myself!
- Prep: 10 mins
- Cook: 20 mins
1Mix flour, sugar and Baking Powder in a medium sized bowl
2Rub in butter
3Add currants and mix well
4Add milk or water and mix well, using your hands. The mix will be very sloppy to begin with but will stiffen up to form a mix which can be rolled out.
5Roll out about 4mm thick, brush lightly with milk or water and dust evenly with sugar.
6Cut into about 20 to 24 squares and transfer to baking trays.
7Bake at 180C for 20 – 25 minutes, until golden and firm to the touch.
8Remove to wire rack to cool.
