    Makes 12 scones

    -2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

    -1/4 cup sugar

    -3/4 tablespoon baking powder

    -1/2 tablespoon baking soda

    -1/2 teaspoon sea salt

    -1 cup rolled oats

    -1 stick unsalted butter

    -2/3 cup buttermilk, to 1 cup

    -1/2 cup dried currants

    Preheat oven to 425.

    Whisk together flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. Cut in pieces of butter a little at a time (you can make this easier by using a food processor fitted with the steel blade). Transfer this mixture to a large bowl. Stir in currants. Add buttermilk until a sticky dough forms (you may need as much as 1 cup of buttermilk). With floured hands, knead the dough into a ball and divide into 2.

    Here you can either form 2 rounds and cut out triangular scones or you can just use your hands to form a biscuit shape and drop the scones onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. Bake the scones for about 15 minutes. All to cool about 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
