½         cup butter

6          tbsp. sugar

1          egg, beaten

2          cups all-purpose flour

½         tsp. apple pie spice

½         tsp. ground cinnamon

1/3        cup currants

1/3        cup mixed candied peel

sugar to dredge

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease several baking sheets.

 

  1. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until light and creamy. Gradually beat in the egg.

 

  1. Sift in flour, cinnamon and apple pie spice. Add the currants and peel, then mix to make a firm dough and knead lightly.

 

  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to ¼ inch thick. Cut out circles with a 4” fluted cutter and place on the baking sheets.  Knead and re-roll trimmings to cut out more circles until all the dough is used up.

 

  1. Bake for 15 minutes or lightly browned. Dredge with sugar and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
