Mummy and I are having lots of fun cooking up yummy delights in the kitchen during this time of quarantine. Even though things are beginning to “open up” in the outside world, we are trying to remain as safe as possible and stay home as much as we can. That said, we wanted to share a really easy recipe that Mummy got from a cooking class with Chef Susan Vogel, that she took before our lives changed! It is really delicious and you can eat them for breakfast with your morning coffee or tea, or as a little snack late in the day. You are going to LOVE these and you don’t have to be a 4-star chef to make them either!!! This recipe only needs one bowl and NO MIXER.
3 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon fine kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup unsalted butter, COLD… cut into 1/4″ cubes
1/3 cup diced crystallized ginger (I used 1 full jar of McCormick)
1 1/2 cups heavy COLD cream
1 beaten egg mixed with 1 Tablespoon water for your egg wash
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a large bowl, whisk together your flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and ground ginger.
- Add the butter cubes to the mixture and cut them in using your finger or a pastry cutter until little pea-sized pieces are formed…then add in the crystallized ginger.
- Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the COLD cream. With your hands, gently mix it into the flour. It will look very rough. Knead everything together in the bowl about 6-8 times until there is no loose flour.
- Turn the flour mixture out onto a lightly floured work surface and divide it up into 2 pieces and shape each one into a round ball. Pat each one out to about 7″ round and 1/2″ thick and cut into 6 triangles. Place them on a parchment lined… or silpat lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart.
- If you want to make smaller scones, you can press the entire dough out into a rectangle and cut out 2″ circles instead
- Try not to handle your dough too much as this will make your scones tough. Just carefully pat it out. If you choose to do the circles, you can reuse your scraps, just try not to manhandle the scraps when pressing it back into shape to re-cut more circles.
- Brush tops with the egg wash mixture
- Sprinkle with a little bit of raw sugar if desired
- Bake for about 16-18 minutes until golden brown on top. The circles will only take about 10-15 minutes.
- Makes 12 triangular scones and numerous circles depending on the size of your cutter.

Recipe sounds awesome! I love scones ?
Mummy loves scones too and is always trying new recipes for them! She just found a new one that is the QUEEN’S favorite scone recipe and she wants to make that one soon.
Yummy! Now.. mummy says we need to find the ginger!
You can find it in the spice aisle at the grocery store.
Sounds good. Now that I’m retired I want to start cooking and baking. First up is an air fryer once I figure out which one to buy. Do you have one?
No, we don’t have an air fryer. Mummy doesn’t want to get any more appliances!!! Lolololol
They are easy to make and really good!

Sounds delish, I will have to try them after I use up my ripe bananas for banana bread. You always have the best recipes!
We have a wonderful recipe for BANANA BREAD in our FAMOUS COOKBOOK!!! Have you tried it? It is on page 43 and is one of the BEST I have ever tried.
Looks yummy!!! Do you have a Weight Watchers version? Hahaha…..
Hmmmmm…. you could try using Stevia for the sugar, that would cut out some of the calories… and then make TINY CIRCLES so you just have a very small portion… but other than that I will wish you luck with WW. It is hard losing weight… Mummy has actually been working on it herself believe it or not. She cuts back on regular food and is walking a LOT!
Those look yummy, stay safe!
Thank you. You be safe too.
Oh yummy thanks for sharing!??
You are welcome… we hope you will try them.
Yummy, Millie tell mummy I said hi!
Hello! We miss you! KISS KISS
Those look delicious.
Thank you so very much!
They were sooooo good! I had a tiny nibble!
They sound lovely but what is kosher salt and cold cream ? Keepsafe all ??
By COLD cream, I simply mean the cream should be VERY COLD, straight from the refrigerator and not having been left sitting on your counter coming to room temperature. Kosher salt can be found right where the regular salt is in the grocery store. It is a salt that is best used in cooking because it has no additives like iodine. It is a flat crystal and brings a better taste to baked foods than regular table salt. If you don’t have any, you can certainly substitute regular table salt.
Thanks ? I thought the cream was a special type ? I shall have a look to see if we have anything like the Kosher salt over here. Thanks again. X
Sounds fabulous. Have to get some ginger
You can find it with all of the spices… it looks like big crystal lumps of ginger… in a jar. You use it just like it comes from the jar. Let me know how you like them.
Thank you for amazing recipe!❤️?
