Fall Baking ~ Gingerbread Scones

Fall is in the air and I'm happy to be baking. With three little ones I don't get to spend hours in the kitchen like I used to love, but as a trade off I now have the sweetest little helpers. Which I sometimes have to remind myself, especially when they're spilling flour on the rug or trying to topple each other off of the counter or chair.

Here's a recipe we've been enjoying. Sorry there are no pictures, we ate them too quickly. Besides it's difficult to get a picture of a brown scone that would make it look as appetizing as it really is. It truely is a Finer Thing.

Gingerbread Scones
This is my own original recipe!

2 1/4 c flour (we use whole wheat pastry flour)
4 Tbsp brown sugar (we use sucanat)
2 tsp baking powedr
1 1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 c  cold molasses
1/3 c milk
1 egg, separated (reserve 1 Tbsp egg white)

1. Combine dry ingredients (first 7) in a large bowl.

2. Cut in butter. I find it easiest to just use my hands and little hands love helping too.

3. Whisk molasses, milk, egg yolk and remaining egg white in a small bowl until smooth.

4. Stir wet mixture into flour mixture until moistened, do not overmix.

5. Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead gently 6-8 times to incorporate any remaining dry mixture.

6. Pat into an 8 inch circle.

7. Beat reserves 1 Tbsp egg white until frothy and brush over circle of dough.

8. Sprinkle dough with 2 tsp of brown sugar (we use sucanat).

9. Cut into 12 wedges. A large pizza cutter works really well.

10. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F for about 12-15 minutes.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Reheat in a 250 degree F oven for about 5 minutes. These are really nice served warm with a steaming cup of tea or chai. The kids love theirs with milk or tea.

These scones freeze well and can be reheated directly from the freezer in a 350 degree f oven for approximately 10 minutes.

Please, let me know what you think! I also love to know what you've been making this fall. Feel free to leave links to your fall favorites!
