Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 35 minutes
Servings 8 large scones

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups Flour
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup crystallized ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a small food processor, combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup ginger. Run the processor for about 30 seconds so the ginger is finely chopped.
  • Zest and juice the lemons.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar/ginger mixture, baking powder, salt and 2 teaspoons lemon zest.
  • Stirring with a wooden spoon, slowly add heavy cream and 2 tablespoons lemon juice.
  • The dough will be shaggy.
  • Put the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead and turn a few times until the dough comes together. Pat into a 9 - 10 inch circle.
  • With a sharp knife, cut the circle into 8 wedges. Place the wedges on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Bottom and corners of scones should be lightly browned.
  • Cool completely on wire rack.
  • Combine 2 c. powdered sugar, left over lemon zest and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Stir until smooth, adding more lemon juice for desired consistency. Pour glaze over cooled scones.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

If you don't have a food processor, ginger can be finely chopped with a knife.
