Ingredients:
  • 6 TBSP unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (can use mixture of all-purpose and whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 1/3 cup granulated or raw sugar, plus extra for garnish
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup NatureBox Zingy Currants
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sour cream (light or regular)
  • 2 TBSP milk
  • 1 TBSP orange juice
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a food processor or in a large bowl using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture until crumbly. Add the zingy currants and stir in with a fork.

In a separate bowl, beat together the egg, sour cream, milk and orange juice. Pour over the ingredients in the other bowl and mix with a fork until the dough is moist and begins to hold together.

Flour hands and gather the dough into a loose ball, then turn out onto a floured surface. Roll to about 3/4 inch thickness.

Cut out triangles and place on an ungreased baking sheet or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle sugar over the tops of the scones.

Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until scones become golden-brown and firm to touch. Transfer to a cooling rack. Serve warm.
