1/2 c plus 2 T. sugar
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
10 oz. cold sweet unsalted butter
2 c oats

2 T. grated orange zest (just bright color)
3/4 c buttermilk

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and butter in bowl of an electric mixer. Using the paddle, mix at a low s[peed until the butter is the size of small peas (til crumbly). Add oats, currants and orange zest. continue to mix, slowly pouring in the buttermilk, until the dough comes together.

Put the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll out into a 3/4 inch thick circle. Cut dough into 10 circles, each 3 1/2 inches (I cut to about 2 inch and it made about 30). Put on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
