Ginger-Ginger Scones
Print Recipe
This is one of the scones I made last summer for the Farmers Market. If you're a ginger lover, this is for you. I make and bring this scone to parties and is a big hit. You can buy already chopped crystallized ginger however, I buy uncrystallized ginger and chop it up. The only place that carries the uncrystallized in Atlanta is Trader Joe's. Uncrystallized cuts down on the sugar content of the scone.

This is one of the scones I made last summer for the Farmers Market. If you're a ginger lover, this is for you. I make and bring this scone to parties and is a big hit.

Instructions
  1. Use lower third of the oven. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar,baking powder,salt, and ground ginger. Add crystallized ginger tossing together until evenly coated with flour. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives. *** I grate the butter*** Make sure the butter is the size of peas.
  3. In a small bowl, stir the cream and egg yolk just to blend. Add to flour mixture. Combine the wet and the dry ingredients with a spatula until just about combined, then use your hands to gently knead the mixture until all the dry ingredients are absorbed into the dough and form a moist ball. Don't over knead.
  4. I roll out my dough about one inch thick and use a biscuit cutter, but you can roll out in to an 8" circle and cut in 8 triangles (wedges)
  5. Place either the circles or wedges on the parchment paper and brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.
  6. Bake until scones are deep golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean, 18-22 min.
