4 oz (100 gm) Butter
4 oz (100 gm) Sugar
8 oz (200 gm) plain flour
1 level teaspoon baking powder
Method: cream butter and sugar, add egg and beat well, add sifted dry ingredients and stir to mix. Roll out on a floured sheet of paper and cut into rounds, put into patty pans and add fruit mincemeat (recipe available below). Top with another round and bake at 350° F [180° C] for about 10 minutes until risen and lightly browned on top. Cool on a wire rack and sift a little icing sugar on top when cold.
This recipe is also an excellent one for making biscuits.
