    In large bowl, mix flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt with fork. Mix in currants and 1 teaspoon lemon peel. Add whipping cream all at once; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Feel free to mix the dry ingredients ahead of time and store in a resealable food-storage plastic bag.
  • tip 2
    If your family isn't big on currants, leave them out and stir in 1/2 cup of dried blueberries instead.
