Ginger Scones

Ginger Scones

Yes, yet another scones recipe! We love scones in our house, better than muffins, actually. Ok, nothing is better than my pumpkin muffins, but day to day we actually prefer scones. These are absolutely yummy, spicy but slightly sweet, anyone who loves a gingerbread will love these!

If you want them sweeter, feel free to add another tablespoon or so of sugar, but I prefer less sugar.

Ingredients needed:

2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbl granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 cup cold butter or margarine
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
½ cup of soured milk

Put your flour in the bowl then whisk in all your spices….

Mmmm butter….nothing like it for baking scones! Get out your pastry blender and cut in the butter.

Time for the egg. Crack it into a bowl, whip it up and then add your molasses.

Add in your sour milk, which can be soured by using a bit of vinegar in it.

Add your wet ingredients to your dry.

Mix until they form a lovely ball, just like this!

Turn out the ball onto a lightly floured surface.

Separate into two balls now.

Flatten them into 6 inch circles, and  mark where you want your scones to be, I find they each make 6 perfectly.

Place on a well greased baking sheet.

Bake in a 375 degree oven until browned and lovely! They are fantastic hot from the oven, slathered in butter!

Hahaha I laughed as I re-read the above comment; the fact that I called the plug-in for the printable recipes a Plug-ON is why I am not the one who works on that end of the website. Snort.

Yup, Mike's working on the plug-on that does the printable recipes up and that should be up and running, well, when he gets back I hope! I hate to give out baking times because my oven cooks everything so lightening fast compared to most people that things would be underbaked, but I would say they should be checked at the 15 minute mark. And see that made me cringe cause mine are DONE at 15 minutes, where most ovens I swear its impossible to have them done so quickly. I need to do a post about Learning Your Oven 101. Mine is lightening fast, dries out anything cooked over 400 degrees and Broil is Satan himself. And the dang thing is only 4 years old!!

Approximately how long do they take to bake? My oven is downstairs (the upstairs one is too ancient and unpredictable) so I need a timer to make sure I check them. Also, would you consider offering print-friendly versions of your recipes? I end up writing my own summary when I want to print them off to skip all the photos. I can still do that, but it might encourage other users to use the recipes if they have an option that is easy to print and bring into the kitchen, maybe with one photo of the final product.
