Easy sultana biscuits from pastry scraps


1 person made this

About this recipe: Great use of pastry scraps using shop bought pastry! I always buy a roll of shop bought short crust pastry to make a pie or flan. I now keep the leftover scraps and add sultanas or currants to make 10 minute 'Eccles cake' pinwheel biscuits. Lovely with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, mid-afternoon.

Makes: 12 or so pastry biscuits

  • 100g 'scraps' of pre-bought pastry
  • 3 tablespoons of sultanas or currants
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar for sprinkling
  • milk for glazing

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
  2. Gather all pastry scraps, roll into ball and place between two pieces of grease proof paper; roll out to 1 cm thickness.
  3. Sprinkle the sultanas/currants over the pastry then do the same with most of the brown sugar. Now fold the pastry over itself and roll again until the sultanas just show through the pastry.
  4. Roll the pastry up like you would for a Swiss roll then slice into 2 cm thick rounds.
  5. Turn each round flat on a board, brush with milk and sprinkle with the last bit of brown sugar.
  6. Place on a greased baking tray and bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.
