Recipe Ingredients for Lemon Ginger Scones

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp splenda sugar substitute
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (Land-o-lakes lite butter)
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
2/3 cup 2% milk
1/2 small egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon 2% milk
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Recipe Directions for Lemon Ginger Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and place rack in middle of oven. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a food processor, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture. (The mixture should look like coarse crumbs). Add the ginger and lemon zest. Add the milk to the flour mixture and mix just until the dough comes together. Do not over mix the dough.

  3. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead dough gently 4-5 times and then pat the dough into a circle that is about 7 inches (18 cm) round and about 12 inches (3.75 cm) thick. Cut this circle in half, then cut each half into 3 or 4 pie-shaped wedges (triangles).

  4. Place the scones on the baking sheet. Make an egg wash with the egg and 1 tablespoon milk. Brush the tops of the scones with this mixture. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  5. Remove from oven and then turn your broiler on high. Sprinkle confectioners sugar heavily over the tops of the scones and place them under the broiler. Broil for just a few seconds, turning the pan as necessary, until the sugar has melted and it begins to turn golden brown. Make sure to watch the scones carefully as the sugar will burn very quickly. This makes yummy crunchies on top. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
