    From BH&G Holiday Cooking 1997 this recipe freezes well so you might consider making a double batch-one for now, one for later.

      The scones were delicious and just right for a cold morning with coffee. I used White Whole Wheat Flour and they came out terrific.

      Mmm, these scones are so good! They rise perfectly, have a lovely flaky texture and the taste is super yummy! These bring back fond memories of holiday season with their gingery, cinnamon flavour. Yum! I too made half the recipe, which gave me 4 scones, that werent around for long here. ;) THANKS SO MUCH for sharing these gems with us, Julie! I enjoyed them a lot! Made and reviewed for the Aussie/NZ Swap September 09, Group Hakea.

      Excellent quality scones. The texture is marvelous with a crisp thin crust with a light crunch while the inside is light, moist and very tender. I made a half a recipe for 4 lovely scones and used a tsp of cinnamon and added 1/4 tsp of vanallin, 1/4 tsp of mace. Skipped the egg yolk and used just the white along with skim milk to trim the fat as much as possible. Outstanding. Made for Photo Tag.
