1/2 tsp baking soda
2 T orange peel
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c cold butter
1/2 c currants
1/4 c sugar
1 egg yolk
3/4 c buttermilk

Preheat oven to 375. Mix flour, baking powder, soda, orange peel
and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until the mixture

sugar. Add to dry ingredients. Mix well. In small bowl, mix egg
yolk and buttermilk and pour into flour mixture just to blend. Turn
dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead with hands and roll into
11" circle. Cut into wedges and place on lightly greased baking
sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Do not
overbake. When cool, drizzle with powdered sugar icing.
