Make It

HEAT oven to 350°F.

MIX flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and currants; stir just until moistened.

PLACE dough on lightly floured surface; knead 10 times. Shape into 2-1/2-inch-thick round. Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Cut deep 1/2-inch "X" in top of dough; sprinkle with remaining sugar.

BAKE 1 hour or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet to wire rack; cool completely before cutting into wedges.
