Treacle Scones

22 Oct

If there was a fall version of the scone, this would be it. Molasses, ginger, all spice… good stuff, people. Make yourself a breakfast treat, and if you have the brilliant idea to make breakfast for dinner for a family of 6, either double the recipe or plan a side – this recipe only makes 8 scones. 🙂 If it’s just you, then eat them all yourself…I won’t tell.

Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp all spice

1/4 cup butter

1 Tbsp molasses

milk

Mix dry ingredients. Heat molasses and butter until melted. Stir the liquid into the flour mixture and enough milk to make a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead lightly. Divide dough in half, roll each piece into a circle about 1/2″ thick. Cut them into four triangles and bake at 400^F for 10 min until browned. Serve with warm butter, Buttercream Syrup, and jam.
