Directions:
In a deep pottery bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles course meal. Add currant and orange rind. Gradually add buttermilk and mix until dough combines and holds. Do not over mix. Turn the dough out onto a slightly floured cloth-covered board. Pat or gently roll dough into a 1/2 inch thick round shape and cut out scones using a 2" biscut cutter or an inverted glass dipped in flour. Brush top of scones with half and half before baking. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown and puffed. Serve immediately.
