As far as spice flavor, molasses flavor, and texture these are wonderful! However they are very much lacking sugar and a pinch of salt. My favorite recipe for basic scones uses 5 tablespoons of sugar, so since there is molasses in this recipe I will try 3 tablespoons of sugar next time. Thanks for a great recipe!
This is by far the best scone recipe that I have ever made! (as per my 5 family members!!). Light and fluffy, easy to make WOW! I served it with lemon curd (which I had made earlier and froze--did you know you can do that and just take out a couple of tablespoons when you need them? It unfreezes in just a few minutes). Excellent!!
Easy to make, good flavor. Quite strong ginger scent in raw dough, but just right once cooked. My children loved them....I'm going to make a batch to freeze, for lunchboxes and recess snacks.
Some gingerbreads are too strong for our tastes, but this one had just the right amount of molasses. The dough was easy to work with & the final product is a firm but soft scone. I think the recipe is perfect as is, but I threw in a handful of white chocolate chips anyway. :) Thanks for posting, lazyme! Congratulations on your football pool win!
This is the recipe I've used for years. My family dearly loves these scones. They're delicious, quick and easy.
