Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Whisk flour, sugar, ginger, cardamom, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together until thoroughly combined. Grate in frozen butter using a box grater. Toss until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in chopped ginger.

  • Whisk buttermilk, egg, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl or measuring cup until thoroughly combined. Add to dry ingredients and mix just until no dry clumps of flour remain; dough will be somewhat sticky.

  • Turn dough out onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently press dough together into an even 7-inch circle. Lightly flour your hands if dough is too sticky to shape. Cut dough into 8 triangles using a bench scraper. Space scones 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.

  • Whisk egg and water until combined. Gently brush the top of each scone with the egg wash. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until scones are lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring scones to a wire rack to cool completely.

I used gluten-free 1:1 flour and they turned out so good. I will try this recipe again. It was like a visit to Starbucks. Read More

Great scones! Easy and fluffy. I liked the method of adding butter by grating it into the flour. It made the butter distribution very even. Yum! Read More
