    truebrit's Note:

    I found this old Yorkshire teatime recipe in Great British Cooking. These currant cookies are very simple, but it's impossible to eat only one!

      These reminded me of a teatime favourite from my Scottish youth, rock cakes. I used sultanas rather than currants, simply because I don't like currants/raisins, they turned out very well and were gone almost before they had time to cool! Definitely an easy-to-make people-pleaser, you could quickly whip up a batch for unexpected guests or hungry teenagers. Nice recipe, thank you truebrit!
