This recipe is easy to bake and uses only 3 ingredients


  • 3 cups SR Flour
  • 1 cup Whipping cream
  • 1 cup Lemonade or 7-up (Not diet)
  • 1/2 cup of currants, raisins and candied peel (Optional)


  • STEP 1
    Sift self raising flour into a mixing bowl and add dried fruit (if you are using). Add combined Lemonade and whipping cream, stirring with a butter knife.
  • STEP 2
    Mix lightly to a wet dough (it's best to use a butter knife, believe me). Knead until workable and turn onto a floured pastry board. Pat or roll to a 1 inch thickness and use 2" cookie cutter to make 18-20 rounds.
  • STEP 3
    Bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet at 390F for 15 mins. Serve warm or cold with scads of butter and topped with jam and or whipped cream.
