      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.
