Recipe Ingredients for Gingersnap Scones with Espresso Glaze

1 3/4 cups flour, all purpose
1 ginger snap cookies, crushed Trader Joe
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup margarine, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp hot water
1 1/2 tsp instant coffee granules
3/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 cup walnut halves

Recipe Directions for Gingersnap Scones with Espresso Glaze

  1. Preheat oven to 400

  2. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a bowl, cut in margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk and egg, stirring just until moist (dough will be sticky).

  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, with floured hands, knead lightly 4 times. Pat dough into a 10-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut dough into 10 wedges, cutting into, but not through, dough. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until golden.

  4. Combine hot water and coffee granules in a medium bowl, stir well. Add powdered sugar, stir well. Drizzle over scones. Cut into 10 wedges, top each with 1 walnut half.
