DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cut in butter with a pastry blender until the largest pieces are the size of a pea.
  • Be careful not to let the butter get too warm or it will make a paste with the flour and ruin your scones.
  • Chop ginger finely and stir into flour mixture.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and the cream.
  • Add to dry mixture and stir just to moisten.
  • Gather the dough and knead it against the sides of the bowl, pressing any loose pieces into the dough.
  • Continue just until the dough comes together into a ball and cleans the sides of the bowl.
  • Transfer to a lightly floured board and pat or roll into a circle about 1" thick.
  • Cut into 8 wedges.
  • Place wedges on a parchment covered baking sheet at least 1" apart.
  • Bake at 425F for 12-15 minutes until the tops are just golden.
  • Cool on a wire rack, or serve while still warm.
