Wonderful bread for afternoon tea.
- 2 cups flour, sifted
- 1 cup candied fruit
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon rose water
- Combine the flour, egg, baking powder, rose water, and buttermilk in a good sized bowl, stirring until they are well blended.
- Fold in the candied fruits so they are distributed evenly in the dough. If the dough seems sticky, add more flour until you can work it easily with your fingers.
- Shape heaping tablespoonfuls of the dough into four leaf clovers.
- Place on a greased cookie sheet at 350*F for about 10 minutes, until fully raised and slightly browned.
- Drizzle a little honey on top while cooling.
