Method :
  • Preheat the oven to 200oC/400oF/Gas 6. Lightly grease two baking sheets. Cream together the butter or margarine and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg yolk.
  • Sift the flour and spices over the egg mixture, then fold in with the currants and peel, adding sufficient milk to make a fairly soft dough.
  • Turn the dough on to a floured surface, knead lightly until just smooth, then roll out using a floured rolling pin, to about a 5mm thickness.
  • Cut the dough into circles to the baking sheets and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Beat the egg white, then brush over the biscuits.
  • Sprinkle with caster sugar and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes, until golden.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
