Ginger Cream Scones

I've been making these scones for years. I love the flavor of candied ginger alongside a nice relaxing cup of Lady Grey or Earl Grey tea. The first time I made these I forgot to whip the cream first and they still came out great - so either way works. Because I prefer scones to be on the less sweet side, I often omit the brown sugar/butter on top.

Serves:

16 scones

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

25 Min

Ingredients

3 c
flour
1//2 c
sugar
4 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
6 Tbsp
crystallized ginger, finely minced
2 c
whipping cream
2 Tbsp
melted butter
2 Tbsp
light brown sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sift dry ingredients. Add minced ginger. Toss well.
2
Whip cream to soft peaks. Fold half of the cream into the dry mix until incorporated. Fold in remaining cream just until mixed. Knead lightly until the dough just forms a ball.
3
Divide dough in half. Press each half into a disc about 7-8" diameter on a buttered baking sheet or on parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar, if desired.
4
With a large knife, gently score each round into 8 pieces. Bake 20-25 minutes until golden. Remove to rack and cool at least 30 minutes before separating.
