    Stylin'Dog's Note:

    This recipe is a little different from the others here on Zaar. My family likes these ginger scones best. You can also substitute currants, cranberries, or other dried fruits, but if you do that, double the amount specified for ginger (1/2 cup instead of 1/4 cup) because ginger is so potent. You'll notice that my recipe only makes 8 scones - that's because I make them really big! You can make yours smaller if you like, just adjust baking times accordingly. If you like a crackly top, brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar before baking. I didn't include that in the recipe as I don't make it that way.

      Cut in butter with a pastry blender until the largest pieces are the size of a pea.
    3. 3
      Be careful not to let the butter get too warm or it will make a paste with the flour and ruin your scones.
    4. 4

    5. 5
      In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and the cream.
    6. 6
      Add to dry mixture and stir just to moisten.
    7. 7
      Gather the dough and knead it against the sides of the bowl, pressing any loose pieces into the dough.
    8. 8
      Continue just until the dough comes together into a ball and cleans the sides of the bowl.
    9. 9
      Transfer to a lightly floured board and pat or roll into a circle about 1" thick.
    10. 10
      Cut into 8 wedges.

      Gingery goodness! As a member of your family, I can confirm that we definitely do like these ginger scones the best. I cut the scones into tinier triangles to serve at a tea party. Guests really enjoyed them. (A few ginger lovers even tucked some into their bags to take home.) Thanks, Darcy, for this well-written and very tasty recipe.

      My first attempt at making scones! Made for Fall PAC 2008 ~ I really like ginger and used 1/2 cup ~ To separate the chopped (clumped together) ginger, I mixed it with the half and half/egg mixture before adding to the dry ingredients. I brushed the wedges with half and half and sprinkled generously with sugar. I didn't get my wedges quite far enough apart on the baking pan, but they cut apart easily with a knife! The scones were tender with crisp bottoms and crunchy sugary tops ~ they were delicious, and I will make them again.

      These were great! I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup all-purpose, and honey in place of the sugar. I LOVE ginger, and could have handled a 1/2 cup, so don't be afraid to be generous! Thanks, I'll be making these again!
