Orange & Ginger Scones: Love Bakes Good Cakes

Hi friends! I'm here to share a post with you while Kathe and her family deal with the passing of Mr. B.'s dad. My thoughts and prayers have been with the family since Thanksgiving, and I am so glad to be able to help her out - even if it's just a little bit.

These Orange & Ginger Scones are perfect if you need a quick breakfast idea .... they would even be good as an accompaniment to dinner! They have a subtle sweetness with just a touch of orange and ginger!

Printable recipe
Yield: 1 dozen

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground ginger
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. baking soda
½ cup (1 stick) cold butter
1 large egg
¾ cup sour cream
1½ tsp. grated orange peel

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, ginger, salt and baking soda. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine the egg, sour cream and the orange peel; add to the crumb mixture and stir until a soft dough forms.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead 5 or 6 times. Divide the dough in half. Pat each portion into a 7-in. circle. Cut each circle into 6 wedges. Separate wedges and place at least 1-inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
