Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 20 - 40
1 1/2 cups SR flour - I use gluten free (sifted)
1/2 cup custard powder (again, gluten free)
1/2 cup castor sugar
125g butter or margarine, chopped
1/2 cup chopped glace cherries
1/2 cup milk choc bits - white or milk
3-4 tablespoons milk ( I use lactose free)
Combine flour, custard powder and sugar in a large bowl. Rub in butter using fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
Mix in cherries and milk bits. Blend in enough milk to make a firm dough. Drop mixture in rough heaps onto lightly greased or lined baking trays.
Bake in a moderate oven - 180C - for 10 to 15 mins or until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Store in an airtight container - away from the kids and especially the husband or they wont last til the end of the day!
