Ingredients
Dough:
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, chilled, cut into small pieces
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup whipping (heavy) cream
Topping:
  • 1 tablespoon whipping (heavy) cream
  • 2 teaspoons turbinado sugar
Instructions
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Prepare one large baking sheet; lightly grease with shortening, or line with parchment paper, or line with a non-stick baking mat.
Dough:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, ginger, and salt; whisk together to mix.
  2. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In a small bowl, stir the honey and heavy cream together. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture; stir just until mixed.
  4. On a lightly floured pastry mat or pastry board, shape and pat the dough into a 7 inch circle or rectangle, about ¾ inches thick. Cut into wedges, squares or circles with a floured kitchen knife and place them 1 inch apart on the baking sheet. Tip: Scones can be cut into any shape you desire. Use a drinking glass to make circles, or cut into squares or wedges with a knife, or use a cookie cutter for other shapes. Dip the edges of the cutter in flour to prevent the dough from sticking. Do not pat the edges of the scone down; instead leave the cuts as sharp as possible to allow the scones to rise in layers.
Topping:
  1. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the top of each scone with heavy cream. Sprinkle ¼ teaspoon turbinado sugar on top of each scone.
  2. Bake: Bake 12-15 minutes or until the scones are very lightly browned. Remove scones from baking sheets and place on a wire cooling rack to cool.
