Gingerbread Scones Recipe

Moist scones with a festive gingerbread flavor were a delightful second course at our ladies' luncheon. They are a scrumptious treat with tea or coffee—and especially nice to serve around Christmas. —David Bostedt, Zephryhills, Florida

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2013

"I found them to be very dry. I make scones a lot and know that the dough is typically dry until you knead it, but these were dry and crumbly after baking. Would recommend adding a little more milk if you're going to make this recipe, but I agree that the spices are off. There are several other scone recipes on this website that are better than this one."

"Great recipe but 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes was way too long. The bottoms burnt for me... so I will be lowering the temp and time...i always fined gingerbread of any kind doesn't take long."

"I love making scones for events that I cater. This recipe was really good and uses items I have on hand. I often use a scone pan that I have that makes small triangular scones for catering. But for family and friends I make them like suggested in the recipe. Then I make a flavored butter or clotted cream to serve with them. Delicious!"

MY REVIEW

"I made these tasty scones this afternoon for a ladies gathering and received rave reviews. Everyone LOVED these! Even my 2 1/2nd old. So easy to make and very good. Perfect with afternoon tea. I made an optional glaze for the top and they were tasty with or without. Will definitely make these again!"
