Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare scones: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry cutter (or your fingers), work butter into the flour mixture until it resembles small pebbles. Add currants and toss to coat.

  • Whisk buttermilk, maple syrup and egg in a medium bowl until blended. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined; do not overmix.

  • Transfer the dough to a clean surface and, using floured hands, press into a 6-inch circle. Cut into 10 wedges. Place the wedges in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake the scones until golden brown, 16 to 18 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, prepare the glaze: Combine confectioners' sugar and orange juice in a small bowl. Spoon the glaze onto the cooled scones and serve immediately.
