  • Add oil, milk, egg to combined dry ingredients; mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in berries.
  • Shape dough to form a ball; pat out on lightly floured surface to form an 8-inch circle.
  • Cut into 8 to 12 wedges; bake on a greased cookie sheet in a 425 degree F oven for 12-15 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • Variations -Use any dried fruit you like... really good substitutions are cherries, sultanas, currants. My favourite variation - Replace 1/4 cup of the milk with 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, and add the zest of the orange to the dry ingredients. Enjoy!
