Mix the flour baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir the dry ingredients into the liquid in 2 stages just until blended.

Fold in the walnuts and currants. Spoon tablespoons of dough on the baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes. The cookies will still be soft to touch when they are done.
