Gingerbread Scones

Gingerbread Scones

"Moist scones with a festive gingerbread flavor were a delightful second course at our ladies' luncheon. They are a scrumptious treat with tea or coffee--and especially nice to serve around Christmas. --David Bostedt, Zephryhills, Florida"

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, ginger, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, combine the molasses, milk and egg yolk until smooth; stir into the flour mixture just until moistened. Turn out onto a floured surface; knead gently 6-8 times. Pat into an 8-in. circle; cut into 12 wedges and place 1 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Beat egg white until frothy; brush over scones. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Was a sure hit on Mama's Day - Thanks! I think I will add some yogurt next time for some additional moisture

Love this recipe - almost identical to the Grandma's Molasses Gingerbread Scone recipe, except that one calls for 1/2 C milk.

Fabulous! So yummy! I used 4 T (1/4 C) brown sugar and added a pinch each of ground cloves and nutmeg. Served warm with a little vanilla whipped cream. They just melt in your mouth! Yummm!

I love this recipe. Moist, delicious, and good warm or room temp--but better when hot and fresh out of the oven. I did the egg wash, but put cinnamon and sugar instead of plain sugar--deliciou...

I followed the recipe exact, only because I read through the reviews before making these, I added an extra generous splash of milk to the wet ingredients because I was concerned about the dough ...

This is a real comfort food! My family loves gingerbread, and made into scones was neat. Next time, I might add some grated orange rind. We will be having this often!

I made these scones as a holiday dessert for friends from England and they loved it. Even their one year old boy wanted more. Great recipe!
