Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375*. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Sift.Use your pastry blender and add the cold butter until the consistency is course and crumbly.Add 1 cup of whipping cream, stirring just till moistened. (I add a bit more cream, it depends on your flour.
  2. now add the 1/2 cup currants and the orange zest. Turn out on lightly floured surface, and knead 4 to 5 times.( don't overwork your dough)

    Bake at 375* for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
