Made this recipe as written but without the nutmeg whipped cream! Instead I had a large batch of my own tapioca cream cheese pudding & topped these tasty gingerbread scones with that! Also used some of DARK brown sugar that I'd made up, so got a little extra hit of the molasses, which, for us, was great! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
