Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C, lightly grease your baking sheets.
  2. Place the flour and baking powder into a large bowl, add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, add the sugar and chopped cherries.
  3. Break the egg into a measuring jug and beat, add the milk and make up to 150ml, stir the egg and milk mixture into the flour and mix well.
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead. Roll out to a 1cm thickness, cut using a round cutter (5cm) and place onto your baking sheets. Brush with a little milk and bake them in the oven for about 10 minutes or until a nice golden-brown colour.

Enjoy served simply with butter or naughty with whipped vanilla cream.
