These were easy to make biscuits that satisfied the snack attack. I have also baked these welsh cakes as opposed to making them in the electric frying pan. I let them bake for about 10-12 minutes on a cookie sheet @ 365°. They turned out more light and fluffy. My husband preferred them in this way. As well, I used raisins as opposed to currants. Yummy!

Delicious and easy. Great proportions. Made them in a food processor using the pulse button and stopped the mixing just before it all clumped together. Then rolled it out. Dough made way more than 12 though. Maybe I just have a smaller cutter, but I got 20 of these little beauties.

My grandma & mom have made these all my life!!! They are one of my favorite things! They're great when you want some baking & it's too hot to use the oven. My uncle can eat dozens at one sitting!! Thanks for sharing!!
