3 c. flour
1 c. buttermilk
1/3 c. sugar
3/4 c. currants
2.5 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. grated orange rind (part or zest only)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. slat
12 tbsp (1.5 sticks or 3/4 cup) butter

1 tbsp. heavy cream
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. sugar

Preheat the oven to 425 F. Use ungreased baking sheet. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir well w/ fork to mix and aerate. Add the butter and cut into the flour mixture, using a pastry blender (or whatever is handy)... work in until mixture looks like fresh bread crumbs. Add buttermilk, currants, and orange rind. Mix only until dry ingredients are moistened. Gather the dough into a bll and press so it holds together. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead 12 times, pat dough into circle 1/2 inch thick.

Glaze: Combine glaze ingredients, stir to blend. Brush dough w/glaze. Cut into 12-18 pre-shaped pieces. Place on baking sheet - bake 10-12 minutes, or until tops are browned.
