Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet.
  • 2 Mix flour, 1/4 cup sugar and the baking powder in large bowl. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in buttermilk and gingerroot until dough leaves side of bowl and forms a ball.
  • 3 Divide dough in half. Place half of dough on cookie sheet; pat or roll into 7-inch circle. Spread lemon curd over dough to within 1/2 inch of edge. Pat or roll remaining dough into 7-inch circle; gently place over lemon curd. Gently pinch edge to seal. Sprinkle with sugar. Cut surface of dough into 8 wedges, making cuts 1/4 inch deep (do not cut into lemon curd).
  • 4 Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet. Remove from cookie sheet to serving platter or dish; cut into wedges. Serve warm.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Handling the dough gently and not overmixing it will keep scones tender.

Lemon curd can be found next to the jams and jellies at your grocery store.

No buttermilk on hand? Pour 1 tablespoon white vinegar into a glass measuring cup, then fill with milk to the 2/3-cup line. Stir, then wait a few minutes for it to thicken slightly.
