12 ozs. Butter, softened
12 ozs. Sugar
3 lbs. Flour
2 1/4 ozs. Baking powder
4 1/2 cups Heavy cream
7 ozs. Dried currants

Cream butter and sugar.

Sift flour and baking powder, and then add to above.

Add heavy cream until dough comes together. Add currants and do not over mix, as scones  would be tough.

Roll dough on a floured surface, about an inch thick. Using a 1-1/2 inch cutter, cut round scones  with it.

Brush scones with egg wash and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12 minutes. Watch so  they don't burn.
