Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper
Sift the flour into a large bowl and rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Stir through the sugar, dried fruit and ginger.
Whisk together the egg and milk in a bowl and add to the dry ingredients, mixing until a dough forms.
Drop rough heaps of mixture (I used a soup spoon) onto the trays and bake for 10 - 12 minutes (I found mine were ready after 10 minutes).
Transfer onto a wire rack to cool
