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.
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
1/4 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 like below! They are fantastic hot from the oven, slathered in butter!
