2 Cups of Flour
1/2 Cup of Sugar
1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
6 Tablespoons (3/4 of a stick) of butter
1 Cup of whipping cream
1/2 Cup of Dried Currants or Crannies
425 degree oven.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
Cut the butter into tiny pieces and add to the mixture.
Using your hands, break up the butter into even smaller pieces while tossing with the flour until the largest pieces are no bigger than a pea.
Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour the cream into the well.
Using your hands, mix by hand until the dry ingredients are all moistened.
Gather into a ball and place on a lightly floured board.
Knead 10 times, pushing the dough with the heel of your hand and folding over until the dough is smooth.
Pat the ball into a 9-inch circle about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
Cut into 8 to 12 wedges like a pizza
Put the triangles on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Brush the top with a little milk and sprinkle with sugar or cinnamon-sugar.
