Darcy's Ginger Scones

35 mins (prep 20, cooking 15)
8 ingredients
8 servings
This recipe is a little different from the others here on Zaar. My family likes these ginger scones best. You can also substitute currants, cranberries, or other dried fruits, but if you do that, double the amount specified for ginger (1/2 cup instead of 1/4 cup) because ginger is so potent. You'll notice that my recipe only makes 8 scones - that's because I make them really big! You can make yours smaller if you like, just adjust baking times accordingly. If you like a crackly top, brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar before baking. I didn't include that in the recipe as I don't make it that way.
