A sprinkling of sugar tops off these tender treats with a touch of sweetness. I like to serve them hot with butter and jam.—Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana

"Love to make scones! I serve them often for some of the catering events I do for women. The ginger and orange are such a bright taste in these scones. I like to make Devonshire cream to serve with the scones."
