Shortcut Gingerbread Scones Recipe


Certain smells and flavors are essential during the holidays and often bring back memories of holidays past. Because most of us are busy, however, itís sometimes difficult to generate those smells and flavors by baking from scratch. Master Baking Mix, however, makes it possible to create wonderful shortcut baked goods in minimum hands-on time. Itís used in these Gingerbread Scones, and since they are quick and easy to prepare, thereís no excuse to skip them in lieu of substandard store bought baked goods. For those who are too rushed to prepare the master baking mix or donít have it already on the pantry shelf, commercial baking mix (make sure it has no added sugar) can be used, as long as eating unhealthy preservatives and additives doesn't matter to you.

ĒĒ

If youíve lots of time, these luscious scones can be cut with gingerbread man cookie cutters; use dried cranberries or raisins for eyes if you like. They can also be cut with a small round cutter and served for tea; make sure there is lemon curd available as well as lightly sweetened whipped cream cheese and/or clotted cream.

8 Servings

3 cups Master Baking Mix
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soft butter
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 egg
  1. Preheat oven to 400į.
  2. Mix the baking mix, ginger, cinnamon, brown sugar, and butter; stir in the molasses, whipping cream, and egg, forming a soft dough.
  3. Roll or pat out to a 10" round on a lightly floured pastry cloth or countertop.
  4. Cut into 8 wedges.
  5. Place the wedges on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake 12-15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
  7. Serve piping hot; split and slather with butter.
