English Scones

1-1/2 cups (350 ml) flour
2 tsp (10 ml). baking powder
1/4 tsp (1 ml). salt
1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar
1/2 cup (125 ml) butter
1/2 cup (125 ml) black currants,
raisins or chopped dates
1 beaten egg


Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in butter until it forms fine crumbs. Add fruit and mix well. Add beaten egg (saving 1 tbsp (15 ml) to brush tops) and enough milk to form a soft dough. Do not knead. Form into two equal balls on cookie sheet and pat each into a 6 inch circle. Score into 8 triangles each by pressing a large knife across the circle like spokes of a wheel. Brush tops with remaining egg. Do not separate. Bake at 400 degrees (200 C.) for 15 minutes or until lightly brown.
