Welsh Cookies

These cookies are both my brother Joe's and my favorites. Sure am hoping that my Mom makes me some for Christmas...
3 c. flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
4 oz. currants
1/2 c. shortening
1/4 c. milk
2 eggs
1/4 c. butter

Mix the dry ingredients and currants. Work in the shortening and butter as for pastry. Beat the eggs; add milk and stir well. Roll about 1/3 inch thick and cut with a round cookie cutter.

Fry in an aluminum frying pan over a slow fire heat until brown. Turn and brown slowly on other side.
