These tempting triangles perfectly balance a light and airy texture with a rich and moist flavor. I serve them frequently for breakfast with fresh fruit, coffee and juice.

Directions

  1. Place currants in a bowl. Cover with hot water and let stand for 5 minutes. Drain well and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.

  3. Beat egg white; brush over dough. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over tops. Bake at 425° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 16 scones.
