Directions:
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and 2 tbsp. sugar. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in currants. Make a well in center; add buttermilk and egg, and stir just until combined (do not overmix). Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface; knead 5 or 6 times. Pat into an 8 disk. With a floured 2-1/4 biscuit cutter, cut out rounds. Reroll and cut scraps once. Transfer to baking sheet, about 1-1/2 apart. Brush rounds with milk; sprinkle with 1 tbsp. sugar. Bake in preheated 425 degree oven until scones are golden brown, approx. 12-15 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
