    We'd give more stars if we could! The lemon and ginger coupled with the sprinkle (mine was a heavy sprinkle ;)) of sugar on top was the perfect combination of sweet and tart. It was so easy to make too, but looks very impressive. Mine took 30 minutes to bake in my oven and the only thing I'll do differently next time is not use a deep-dish pie plate. A baking sheet will provide ample room for your fingers to grasp the dough underneath to pull it up & seal it. I think I'd also pat the bottom about 8 inches around to give a little extra dough to pull up on. But those are very minor details for convenience sake. :) Thanks for sharing this recipe, Cadillacgirl. We already can't wait to try this technique with other flavor combos! :D Made & enjoyed for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes!

    Very good! I used the lid to my flour container to shape the dough and it worked well. I had a bit of trouble sealing the edges since I got the curd too close the edge, but even though a bit drizzled out during baking, it was good. It need more time to bake, but ovens vary. The chocolate is fabulous. I will be making this again!

    Divine!! The lemon curd filling against the light ginger scone is palatal delight. Made as written cutting down to serve two and wish I had made the full batch, guess that means I will have to make again next weekend (wink). Like other reviews did find the dough very wet to the point of finding a little hard to shape but did not add more flour. This recipe is a keeper that I am looking forward to making often. Thanks for the post.

    Made this earlier today (in fact, made 2 batches at once) and it was delicious! I also had a wetter, sticky dough that didn't need any rolling out of the sort, just pushing it around with the fingertips. The wetness made it very easy to seal and I didn't really pull up the bottom layer at all with the top to do so. Took 25 minutes and came out soft and moist. Can't wait to make again! I almost used ginger powder and now I can't bear the thought of substituting ingredients now since the ginger gives it such a ting and splash of flavor. Thank you!

    I'm so glad I gave these a try...very delicious. Interesting that Bonnie G had a wet dough, mine was not and my results were also spectacular! So the recipe must be forgiving. I rolled out the top layer on the counter first then slipped it over the lemon curd (store bought). In addition to sugar, I sprinkled on dried lemon zest (not pepper or poppy seeds, as it looks like in the photo). Made for ZWT and I'm a Quisine Queen!
