glazed gingerbread scones

 glazed gingerbread scones- spicy pillows of fragrant bliss

This is a re-visited post, I did this once before in the early days of this blog… you can see it here: gingerbread scones complete with crappy photographs.

Now, the new, improved version has a printable recipe. Because you;re going to want to make these. I know.. these are more muffin shaped than scone shaped. I used a small circular cutter… mainly because I was making these for my moms group, and if I cut triangles, I’d have to make another batch. I know, laaaa-zeeee. But, hey! It’s portion control! ;)

Thinking back to last time that I made these, my kitchen seemed a lot darker. Maybe that kitchen paint job did something to brighten things up….

I dipped these babies in a milk and confectioners sugar glaze….

I should have taken a few more production photos, huh? Like, raw dough… and molasses pouring. Man, I was a slacker, huh?! I’ll make it up to you guys.

  1. they look great. And do not worry – I happen to really like the pictures.
    My one question is – do they still taste like gingerbread without any ginger in them?
    Keep blogging i love to read your posts.

  2. One word of advice to anyone trying these….DONT FORGET THE MOLASSES…They turned out eatable but I am sure not as good as what they should be. Opps next time I will let you know how they went when I follow directions!

  3. Just made these! The flavor and smell is really amazing. A little disappointed in the texture because they are quite dry, I prefer moist scones so this may just be personal preference. I may experiment with the butter next time. But all in all these were great! Thanks!!

  4. I actually did not use ginger and they turned out fantastic, but I did add an additional tsp of cinnamon.

  5. Hey don’t worry about the shape- I’m a Brit and this is the shape scones ALWAYS are for us- I’d never seen triangular ones until Pinterest ;) So really, you’re just being multicultural. It’s all cool…
