Quinoa Currant Scones

Recipe Ingredients:
1 cup organic <a href="/cookingbaking/grains/quinoa/flour.html">quinoa flour</a>
1 cup <a href="/cookingbaking/grains/wheat/white-flour.html">white flour</a>, unbleached
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp <a href="/cookingbaking/salts/sea.html">sea salt</a>
1 1/2 tsp <a href="/cookingbaking/leavenerthickener/baking-powder.html">baking powder</a>
1/2 tsp <a href="/cookingbaking/leavenerthickener/baking-soda.html">baking soda</a>
1/2 cup unsalted butter (cold)
2 tsp fresh orange zest
1/3 cup <a href="/driedfruit/raisins/currants.html">currants</a>
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp buttermilk

Cooking Directions:
1.  In a mixing bowl sift together the flours, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

2.  Cut the butter into small pieces. Cut butter pieces into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse meal with some pea-sized pieces remaining. Add the zest and currants. Toss gently to coat. Gradually add buttermilk (keep back 2 tablespoons for brushing on tops of scones) until dough just holds together.

3.  Turn the dough onto a lightly floured board and roll it to 3/4" thickness. Using a 2" round cookie cutter, cut out circles of dough. Place on an oiled baking sheet. Brush tops with buttermilk. Bake at 425F for 12-15 minutes, or until golden. Yield: 12 scones
