READY IN: 35mins

These are so fantastic. If you love gingerbread, these are the perfect Sunday morning treat. My husband says they taste just like gingerbread men. A lot of scones come out dry and crumbly, but these are light and moist and just plain yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. If using a baking stone, place in oven now.
  3. Mix dry ingredients together.
  4. Add butter and blend using a pastry blender until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs (alternatively, do this step in a food processor).
  5. In a separate bowl, beat together milk, egg, molasses and vanilla.
  6. Add flour mixture and raisins to the milk mixture.
  7. Stir gently, just until dough forms.
  8. Form dough into a ball.
  9. On a lightly floured surface, pat dough into a 1 inch thick round.
  10. Cut into 8 wedges.
  11. Pour cinnamon sugar into a shallow bowl.
  12. Press tops of wedges into cinnamon sugar.
  13. Place wedges on baking stone or on a greased baking sheet.
  14. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
  15. NOTE: Scones in general do not rise much and will come out dense, but not hard. Do not expect them to have the same texture as muffins or biscuits.
