Very tasty little currant biscuits with the flavour of caraway seed, a bit like Irish soda bread. Very quick and easy to make.

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. With a pastry blender cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in currants.
  3. Mix in beaten egg. Pour in milk and mix with a fork to make a soft dough (may need a little more milk).
  4. On a floured surface shape dough into a ball and knead lightly 5 or 6 times. Roll out dough to 5mm thick and cut into squares and triangles with a knife (approximately 5cm in diameter).
  5. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until slightly browned.
