    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
    2. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. With a pastry blender, rub in butter until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in currants.
    3. Mix in beaten egg. Pour in milk and mix with a fork to make a soft dough (may need a little more milk).
    4. On a floured surface, shape dough into a ball and knead lightly 5 or 6 times. Roll out dough to .5cm thick and cut into squares and triangles with a knife (approximately 5cm wide).
    5. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until slightly browned.
