2½ teaspoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
½ cup Currants
1 \N Egg, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons Sugar

Preheat oven to 425. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, & salt in the bowl of a food processor; add butter & process until the mixture ressembles coarsely ground meal. Transfer to a bowl.
