Cook Time:

18 to 20 minutes


8 Wedge-Shaped Triangles


2  cups  flour

3  tablespoon  sugar

1/2  teaspoon  salt

1  tablespoon  baking powder

1/2  cup  cold butter or margarine (1 stick)

2/3  cup  milk

1/4  cup  chopped raisins

1/4  cup  chopped dried apricots

1  egg, beaten for glaze


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Lightly butter a baking sheet.

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.

Cut butter into small pieces and rub it into the dry ingredients to form a soft crumble.

Stir in fruit.

Add milk, stirring until a very soft dough is formed.

Dump onto a floured and knead once or twice to share a loose ball.

Pat the ball out onto the baking sheet to make an 8-inch circle.

Using a floured knife, cut the circle into eight wedges and wiggle the knife to separate the edges and allow air to circulate between them.

Brush tops with a little egg.

Bake 18 to 20 minutes until golden and cooked through like a biscuit
