    3/4 cup white sugar

    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    1/2 cup butter

    1/2 cup dried currants

   1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. With a pastry blender,
cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in currants.
   3.  Mix in beaten egg. Pour in milk and mix with a fork to make a
soft dough (may need a little more milk).

5 or 6 times. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut into squares
and triangles with a knife (approximately 2 inches in diameter).
