Stage 1

Pre-heat the oven to 400°F/200°C/180°C (Fan). Lightly grease 2 baking trays.

Stage 2

Measure the butter and sugar into a bowl and cream together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk. Sift in the flour and spices and mix well. Add the currents and mixed peel and enough milk to give a fairly soft dough.

Stage 3

Knead the mixture gently on a lightly floured surface and roll out to a thickness of 5mm. Cut into rounds using a 6cm biscuit cutter. Place on the prepared baking trays.
