Add raisins (dried fruit). Separately, mix the egg, to which was added milk, and then poured into a dry blend. Stir to afford a wet batter * *, which sticks to fingers. Scoops with tablespoon of the mixture and put in a tray with pre-laid paper for baking and so while utilizing all the mixture. In preheated oven bake cookies of 190C degrees 15-20 minutes or until ready depending on the oven. * The original English recipe uses something called self-raising flour or meal, which rises only (ie when using such flour do not need supplements such as baking powder, soda in yoghurt etc. for the dough to rise). I can not remember whether the local market offers this product and so on needed items I mentioned 1 tsp baking powder that is added to the flour mixture in the beginning. I've done it both ways and I always receive, because the recipe is not pretentious and is very easy. * Optional can add crushed nuts.
There are self-rising in Bulgaria, flour raising agent says - normal flour with a little baking powder is the same.
