3/4 cup milk (can add a little more if needed)

Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, add milk and stir with a fork to make a ragged dough.

Turn out onto counter top and knead just until the ragged bits are incorporated into the dough (the berries make a pretty colour).  Gently pat into a 3/4 inch disc and cut into wedges or circles (using a medium-large cookies cutter).
