Directions

  1. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in raisins.
  2. Place egg in a 1 cup measure; beat lightly with a fork. Add milk to the 1/4 cup mark; pour into flour mixture and stir with fork to make a soft dough; ( a little more milk may be needed ). On a floured surface, shape dough into a ball and knead lightly 5-6 times.
  3. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness and with a floured small biscuit cutter, cut into rounds. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) on greased cookie sheet until slightly browned.

My welsh friend tells me that they should be baked on top of the stove on a griddle (I DO MINE ON A LARGE FRY PAN I DONT HAVE A GRIDDLE) couple of minutes each side on a medium heat. Place on a plate with a clean tea cloth over till cool, then place in airtight container till required, but the wont last long. spread with butter, yummmmm

My daughter made these as a "Welsh" dish for a school program on immigration. My main problem with the recipe is that it is somewhat unclear. The ingredient list calls for one quarter cup milk, yet the direction is for you to beat the egg in a cup measure and add milk to the one quarter cup line. That ended up being much less than a quarter cup of milk. The other criticism is that there is no time given for baking. We baked the cookies about until golden brown (25 minutes) and they came out too hard and dry. Not a bad cookie, but I wouldn't go to the trouble again with the kneading and cutting.

Unfortunately the directions are not clear enough especially when people have never had Welsh tea cake. Definitely make on a griddle - otherwise the results are far from good.
