Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), cold and diced, plus more for cooking
  • 3/4 cup currants
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • Melted butter, for cooking
Directions

Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, zest, nutmeg and salt in a medium bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture looks sandy. Stir in the currants. Beat the eggs and 2 tablespoons of the buttermilk together. Stir into the dry ingredients to make a shaggy dough, add more buttermilk if the dough is dry. Gather dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Roll the dough on a floured workspace into a piece about 1/4-inch thick. Cut into 2 to 3- inch rounds.

Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium-low heat. Brush the pan surface with butter. Cook the cookies until slightly brown and cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a rack, sprinkle with sugar and cool. Store in a cookie tin.
