Serves 12-16 | Prep Time 20 mins | Cook Time 15 mins

Ingredients

3 cups sifted all purpose flour
2 1/2tsp baking powder
1/2 cup. sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup currants, washed and dried
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup light cream


In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, soda and salt. With a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Add the currants. Gradually add the buttermilk and mix until dough clings together.



Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board or pastry cloth and pat into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Cut the scones into rectangular pieces or squares, whichever you choose, and place on a buttered baking sheet. Brush the tops with cream and bake in a 450 oven for about 15 minutes.
