Gingerbread Scone Mix
Just in time for the holiday season!
Our artisan-made Gingerbread Scone Mix will make your home feel warm and cozy with it's ginger and cinnamon aroma! These tearoom-quality scones come out fluffy every time, even right from the freezer!
All that you need to add to the base mix is 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, 7/8 cup buttermilk (or vegan alternatives), and 2 TBS molasses.
You can enjoy these mouth-watering scones as directed on the package or make the whole batch and freeze them for another day. Perfect to have on hand for that unexpected guest or that spur-of-the-moment tea party! They only take 13-18 minutes to bake (depending on your oven).
Once the dough is cut into scones, either the triangle shape or bisquit shape, lay them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place the uncovered cookie sheet into the freezer for 2 hours. Once they are frozen, remove the scones (they come off easily) and wrap with plastic wrap or place in a zipper freezer bag. Don't forget to mark the outside of the bag with the date, scone flavor, and oven temperature (425°). Return your scones to the freezer. They stay fresh in the freezer for up to 2 months!
Baking Your Frozen Scones:
Make sure your oven is pre-heated before putting your scones in the oven. This makes a difference in the results of your scone. Place your straight-from-the-freezer scones onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes and then check your scones. If the scones are dough-like, cook 1-2 minutes longer and test again. Repeat another 1-2 minutes if necessary. Keep a close eye on them at this point. Remove immediately from the oven once the scones are a golden brown on top. It is normal for the scones to take an additional 3-5 minutes longer to cook if they go into the oven frozen.
Now that your house smells amazing, enjoy your fresh baked gingerbread scones! Don't forget to invite a friend to join you!
The scone mix has a shelf life of one year.
