Scones with Dried Currants Recipe

2 C all-purpose flour, unsifted
3 tsp baking powder
2 Tbl granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt (table salt, not kosher)
4 Tbl butter (1/2 stick)
3 eggs
1/2 C heavy cream
1/2 C dried currants

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
3. Cut butter into the flour until the mixture resembles crumbs.
4. In a separate bowl, beat two eggs and stir in the cream. Then stir the egg-cream mixture into the dry ingredients.
5. Stir in currants.
6. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and press it together into a single lump. If it doesn't hold together yet, add water (or milk or more cream) a tablespoon at a time, until it does. Don't overwork the dough.
7. Roll dough out to a thickness of 1 inch. Cut into rounds with fluted pastry cutter.
8. Prepare your baking sheet pan by greasing it with butter or shortening or lining it with parchment paper or use a silicone baking mat.
9. Place scones on the baking sheet.
10. Separate the 3rd egg and beat the egg white. Then brush the tops of the scones with the egg white.
11. Bake 15 minutes or until golden.


Unlike what we are familiar with as "currants," which are tart, bush-grown berries, the Zante currant is more similar to raisins being from the grape family, sweet and grown on a vine.
