This recipe is from Delia's Cakes

Method

Put the flour, salt and butter into a mixing bowl and rub to the fine crumb stage.

Then add the sugar and after that enough milk to mix to a firm dough that will leave the bowl clean.

After that transfer it to a lightly floured surface and roll it out to a rectangle 20cm by 30cm.

Now sprinkle the currants over half the surface and then fold the other half on top and roll everything again so you end up with a rectangle 20cm by 30cm.

Then trim it neatly using a sharp long-bladed knife, so you end up with a shape about 18cm by 28cm.

Cut this into 24 fingers approximately 3cm by 7cm.

Now place the biscuits on the baking sheet, brush with a little egg white and sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Bake near the centre of the oven for 12–15 minutes, then cool on a wire tray and store in an airtight tin.

I think these twice-baked, very crisp biscuits are great for children to make and eat. After that, the adults in true Italian fashion sit down with a glass of chilled Vin Santo, and dip them into it before each bite.

These are the quickest and easiest biscuits I have ever made: they have a nice crunch and a toffee taste. A friend recently reminded me of these, so we tried them again and decided, yes, they absolutely had to be included.

Gingerbread Men

This very well-behaved dough can put up with quite a bit of punishment, and is therefore ideal for children to play around with. You can buy proper cutters for making ‘men’ but in fact you (or your children) can pick any shaped cutter you like.
