3/4 cup 1% milk
1 large egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) cold unsalted butter
2/3 cup dried currants
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together milk and egg. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Stir in currants. Stir in cream mixture until just combined.
Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface and pat into a 6-inch circle. Cut into 6 wedges and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until golden 15 minutes.
