Recipe for the Welsh cakes

A couple of people asked for the recipe for the Welsh cakes I posted yesterday.

Welsh cakes

Here is the recipe:

4 oz self-raising flour
2 oz butter or margarine
1 oz sugar
Pinch of mixed spice
1½ oz dried fruit of some kind (currants/sultanas/raisins)
A drop or two of milk to mix

Rub the butter into the flour.
Add the sugar, spice and fruit and mix them in.
Add a drop of milk to bind the mixture together into a soft dough.
Roll out the dough until it is about half and inch (1 cm) thick.
Cut into circles with a pastry cutter.
Cook on a griddle or heavy frying pan until done, flipping occasionally to ensure even cooking.

Eat hot or cold with butter.

In texture they are more like a scone than a biscuit (British not American) and not as hard or chewy as a cookie.
