2 ounces currants or other dried fruit
1 pinch salt
1 ounce butter
4 ounces self rising flour
1 ounce sugar
milk to mix
Chop dried fruit (currants, raisins, sultanas or a mixture). Put flour and sugar into a bowl and rub in the butter lightly with the finger tips until no lumps remain, then stir in the sugar.
Add 1-2 Tbs. milk to give a stiff dough and turn this on to a floured board. Pat lightly into shape and roll out very evenly to 1/8 in. thick, keeping the dough a regular shape then cut in half.
Sprinkle one half evenly with chopped fruit and cover with the other piece of dough. Lightly flour the board and roll the mixture again until 1/8 in. thick.
Keeping as square as possible. Trim the edges and cut into squares or triangles and bake on a greased tray in moderately hot oven, 400 degrees F, for 15 minutes.
