 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  cups          flour
    2      teaspoons     double-acting baking powder
      1/2  teaspoon      baking soda
    2      tablespoons   sugar
      3/4  teaspoon      salt
      3/4  teaspoon      cinnamon
      1/2  cup           cold, unsalted butter -- cut into bits
      3/4  cup           quick-cooking oats
      1/2  cup           dried currants, soak in boiling water -- 5 minutes
      2/3  cup           plus 2 T. buttermilk
 
 Into a bowl, sift together the flour, the baking powder, the baking soda, the
 sugar, the salt and the cinnamon.  Add the butter and blend the mixture until
 it resembles meal.  Stir in the oats and the currants, drained.  Add the
 buttermilk and stir until the mixture just forms a soft sticky dough.  Drop
 the dough by rounded tablespoon onto a buttered baking sheet and bake the
 biscuits in the middle of a preheated 425 oven for 15 to 17 minutes, or until
 pale golden.  Makes about 16 biscuits.
