Welsh Cookies

    We first came across Welsh cookies at a Celtic Festival. I loved them so much that I had to find a recipe. This is the first recipe I tried and I stuck with it because they turned out just like the cookies I had at the festival. They are perfect with a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of tea (my preference being English Breakfast).

    Directions:

    Batter
    1. Add dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soad, salt, nutmeg, sugar) and blend well.
    2. Cut in shortening unti crumbly. Stir in currants.
    3. Beat together 2 eggs and 6 Tbsps Milk.
    4. Add Egg and Milk mixture to dry ingredients, stir until well mixed.
    5. Place plastic on bowl to cover dough & chill dough in refrigerator about 2 hours.

    To Cook

    1. Preheat griddle to 350.
    2. On floured board, roll dough in 4 parts to 1/4″ thickness.
    3. Cut shapes with floured glass or cookie cutter.
    4. Cook on griddle until golden turning cooking once.
