Chef Raphael’s Tip
If you don’t have a pastry cutter, use a round cup/lid to form the round shape on the dough then use a sharp knife to cut the dough.
You can also decide to cut the dough into square shapes using the small knife by first shaping the dough into a square shape then diving into equal blocks. The trick is to have them even to ensure they bake at the same time.
If you are not a fan of raisins/sultanas, you can skip them and have them plain. I would suggest you add 10gms more of sugar to compensate the sugar.(OPTIONAL)
