Reviews forOrange Ginger Scones
"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."
"Even my granddaughter,who usually doesn't like scones, really enjoyed these."
