Utensils

  • cookie cutter
  • Bake stone
  • Step 1/7

    • 250 g Self Raising Flour
    • 125 g butter
    • 125 g sugar

    Rub together butter, flour and sugar to a fine crumb with your finger tips.

  • Step 2/7

    • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

    Add cinnamon, and mix through crumb-like mixture.

  • Step 3/7

    • Large egg, beaten
    • Metal spoon

    Make a well in the centre of the mixture, then add the beaten egg and sultanas/raisins. Mix initially with a spoon to combine, then make into a firm dough.

  • Step 4/7

    • rolling pin

    Roll out onto a floured surface using a rolling pin. Roll out to a thickness of 0.75cm.

  • Step 5/7

    • cookie cutter

    Cut the dough into rounds (a cutter of 5 or 6cm across will be good)

  • Step 6/7

    • Bake stone

    Using a very heavy saucepan, or a bake stone heated to a low/medium heat, cook one side at a time until golden brown, then flip carefully and cook the other side until golden brown.

  • Step 7/7

    When cooked, put onto a sugared plate to cool, and sprinkle with more sugar. These are best warm, and with a little jam if preferred!
