Delicious!! True english scones, buttery and flaky! I didn't have candied ginger so I used fresh ginger and used buttermilk instead of cream and they turned out great!!
First let me say that I only roughly (very roughly) followed this recipe because I really, really wanted them, but I didn't have the ingredients on hand. I didn't have any lemon or heavy cream. So I skipped the sugar and lemon and replaced the heavy cream with 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk and 1/4 cup rich skim milk. I patted the dough into a round and scored into wedges instead of cutting into circles. They were incredible. BUT . . . I wish I had lemon. My friend uses lemon in her recipe and it really compliments the ginger. Looking forward to following the recipe next time. Five stars because if they are this good now, I can only imagine how wonderful they'll be when I make them correctly!
