  • 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄3 cup plus 2 tsp. granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1 1⁄4 cups plus 1 Tbsp. heavy cream, divided
  • 1⁄3 cup dried currants


  • Preheat oven to 425°F and place a rack in the top third of the oven.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, 1⁄3 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum.
  • Add 1 1⁄4 cups heavy cream and stir gently until the dry ingredients are moistened. Be careful not to over-handle the dough. Fold in the currants.
