glazed gingerbread scones

 glazed gingerbread scones- spicy pillows of fragrant bliss

This is a re-visited post, I did this once before in the early days of this blog… you can see it here: gingerbread scones complete with crappy photographs.

Now, the new, improved version has a printable recipe. Because you;re going to want to make these.

[wprm-recipe-jumpI know.. these are more muffin shaped than scone shaped. I used a small circular cutter… mainly because I was making these for my moms group, and if I cut triangles, I’d have to make another batch. I know, laaaa-zeeee. But, hey! It’s portion control! 😉

Thinking back to last time that I made these, my kitchen seemed a lot darker. Maybe that kitchen paint job did something to brighten things up….

I dipped these babies in a milk and confectioners sugar glaze….

I should have taken a few more production photos, huh? Like, raw dough… and molasses pouring. Man, I was a slacker, huh?! I’ll make it up to you guys.
