Recipe for Quinoa Currant Scones

Recipe Ingredients:
1 cup  organic quinoa flour
1 cup  white flour, unbleached
1/3 cup  sugar
1/2 tsp  sea salt
1 1/2 tsp  baking powder
1/2 tsp  baking soda
1/2 cup  unsalted butter (cold)
2 tsp  fresh orange zest
1/3 cup  currants
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp  buttermilk

Cooking Directions:
1.  In a mixing bowl sift together the flours, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

2.  Cut the butter into small pieces. Cut butter pieces into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse meal with some pea-sized pieces remaining. Add the zest and currants. Toss gently to coat. Gradually add buttermilk (keep back 2 tablespoons for brushing on tops of scones) until dough just holds together.

3.  Turn the dough onto a lightly floured board and roll it to 3/4" thickness. Using a 2" round cookie cutter, cut out circles of dough. Place on an oiled baking sheet. Brush tops with buttermilk. Bake at 425F for 12-15 minutes, or until golden. Yield: 12 scones
