Ginger Cream Scones


The scones have become very popular at the Farmers' Market! :) I make six or seven different types each week and always sell out. These are my favorites. They are spicy with ground ginger and chunks of crystallized ginger and the turbinado sugar on the top gives them a nice finish. This recipe uses my Baking Mix.

Ginger Cream Scones               **Click here to print this recipe**

2 1/3 cups Baking Mix
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Zest from one lemon
6 tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 large egg
Turbinado sugar for the tops

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, stir together Baking Mix, sugar, ground ginger and lemon zest. Cut in butter until it resembles small peas; stir in crystallized ginger. Make a well in the center. In a separate bowl, combine heavy cream and egg; mix well. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and mix lightly until incorporated. Do not overmix.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 4 or 5 turns. Roll or pat dough into a circle 7 inches in diameter. Cut into 6 wedges and place on a baking sheet. Make sure to leave enough room between the scones as they will rise a bit and spread out. Brush the top of each scone with a little heavy cream and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
Bake at 375 degrees for 18 to 22 minutes until golden brown.

I buy my crystallized ginger (along with a lot of other herbs and spices) at Penzeys Spices. There is a store in Tucson and I just love going in there! Luckily for Jerry, there is a bench for the husbands to sit and wait while the wives are shopping. ;-) If you haven't ever been to one of their stores or looked at one of their catalogs, I recommend you do. Their products are wonderful and their prices seem reasonable too. Sorry for carrying on but I just wanted to share! LOL!!

Linking up with Rural Thursday, Farmgirl Friday and Farm Fresh Friday. Updated to share with Food On Friday at Carole's Chatter.

Those look so goooood ........I found recipe once on line for Apricot scones, called for 1/2 buttermilk, after I looked at a bowl of flour I kept adding buttermilk, decided there must have been a typo in the recipe after I got to one and a half cups of buttermilk it looked much better, and I sprinkled Turbinado Sugar on them also, gave a nice shiny crust.

Your scones sound wonderful! Great photo. :) I've been meaning to make ginger scones for ages (they seem like they'd be perfect with a cup of tea, don't they?), so I'm thrilled I won't have to start from scratch looking for a recipe. Thanks! :)
