Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas6. Grease a baking tray.
Sieve the flours and baking powder into a large bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the mixed dried fruit, sugar, spices, orange and lemon zests.
Lightly beat the egg yolk and add it to the mixture with enough milk to make a stiff dough (you may not need all the milk). Divide the dough into 12, shape into mounds and place onto the baking tray.
For the glaze, mix the egg yolk, salt and water together and brush the mixture over each rascal. Decorate with the almonds and glacé cherries and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
