"Cooking Children Can Do With Supervision"
100g caster sugar
200g plain flour
1/2 level tspn. mixed spice
Method: Cream margarine and sugar until creamy. Sift the flour and mixed spice into the creamy mixture and mixed well. Add the currants and egg and beat to form a dough. Turn the dough onto a floured table and knead it with your hands. Roll out the dough to the thickness of a 20 cent coin. With a biscuit cutter cut out circles and place on a greased tray. Use scraps of dough for more biscuits. Put them in the oven and cook for 10 minutes. Cook until lightly golden. Put onto a wire rack to cool.
