Gingerbread Scones

I will be testing this one too

Gingerbread Scones

■1/3 C. milk
■1/3 C. light molasses
■2 C. all purpose flour
■2 tsp. baking powder
■1/4 tsp. baking soda
■1 tsp. ground cinnamon
■1 tsp. ground ginger (I will probably increase this to 1.5 tea ginger)
■1/4 tsp. ground cloves
■7 Tbs. cold unsalted butter, cut up

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Measure milk in a glass cup measure; add molasses to the 2/3 C. mark and stir to blend. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add butter and cut in with a pastry blender or rub in with your fingers, until mixture looks like fine granules. 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 ungreased cookie sheet. Pat each piece of dough into a 5 inch circle; cut into 6 or 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.

Yield: 12 or 16 triangles
