Irish Soda Bread Rolls

2 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 c quick-cooking oats
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 c currants or raisins
1 1/2 c buttermilk
2 T unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and currants. Stir in buttermilk until just combined. Turn out to a floured board and knead a few times, forming dough into a large flattened ball. Cut into 8 wedges and then form each wedge into a small ball.  Place dough balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cut an "X" in the tops of the dough balls with knife or scissors. Brush with butter and bake in center of oven for 40 to 45 minutes, until browned. These are best served warm with butter.
