Phil Quantrill was the first teacher that our kids had, at a playschool that we started in Toronto in 1983. She was a lovely Welsh woman who has remained in our hearts all of these years later. We make her recipe every St. David’s Day.

1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup butter

2 Tbs. milk
1. Mix flour & baking powder. Rub in butter until crumbly.
2. Mix sugar and currants. Add to flour & butter.
3. Beat egg with milk. Add to other ingredients and combine to form dough. Add more flour if necessary to be able to knead lightly. Roll to ¼” thick and cut into rounds.
