Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400ºF. Soak currants in enough warm water to cover 10 minutes to soften; drain.
  • 2 Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in orange peel, egg, currants and just enough half-and-half until dough leaves side of bowl.
  • 3 Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 10 times. Divide dough in half. Roll or pat each half into 6-inch circle, about 1/2-inch thick. Place on ungreased cookie sheet; brush with egg white.
  • 4 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Cut each circle into 10 wedges.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Did you know that scones are fit for a king? These Scottish quick breads may have been named for the "Stone of Destiny" (or Scone) where Scottish kings were once crowned.

One orange should give you about 1 tablespoon of grated orange peel. That's just enough for these sensational scones!
