How to make it

  • Heat oven to 425 degrees. Measure milk in a glass cup measure; add molasses to the 2/3 cup mark and stir to blend
  • Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add buttetr and cut in with a pastry blender or rub in with your fingers, until mixture looks like fine granuals. Stir milk mixture and add. Stir with a fork to form a smooth, rather soft dough.
  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and give 10 - 12 kneads. Cut dough in half. Knead each half briefly into a ball, turn smooth side up, and place on an un-greased cookie sheet. Pat each piece of dough into a 5-inch circle; cut into 6 - 8 wedges; leave sides touching. Bake about 10 minutes, or until medium brown. Do not overbake. Cool, loosely wrapped in a cloth, on a wire rack.
  • makes 12 - 16 scones

    Delicious!! Since this scone didn't have sugar in it I thought an icing would be great. I made a maple icing with a hint of lemon zest and sprinkled a few crushed candy canes to make them festive. I will definitely use this recipe again and again! thanks for posting it. more in IMI Gingerbread Scones
