Orange Ginger Scones

Alright. Scones don’t use yeast, but it’s still baking. I love to eat baked things for breakfast and scones are so easy to make!

Orange Ginger Scones

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

2 1/4 baking powder

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 stick butter (8 tbsp) cold

1 egg

1/4 milk

1/4 cup sour cream

2 tsp zest of orange

1/4 cup candied ginger chopped

Using a mixer, put the dry ingredients the bowl.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Chop up the cold butter in 1/2 inch pieces and mix until crumbly.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Take bowl out of mixer. Add in egg, beaten lightly, cold milk, sour cream and orange zest. Mix by wooden spoon.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Mix in candied ginger. I love the “Hello my name is” tags. I got the idea from Joy the Baker.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Roll or pat out to about 3/4 inch thick on a floured counter. If dough is sticky, add a little more flour but it should be soft and slightly tacky.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Cut into any shape you want! I did diamonds. pretty small too. About 2ish inches wide.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Bake at 450°F on parchment lined cookie sheet, for about 12 minutes or until golden brown.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Let cool a little and enjoy!
