Have you ever tasted something that transports you to a certain memory from your childhood? That’s exactly what these gingerbread scones can do. They’ll take you back to your grandmas kitchen, sipping hot chocolate and daydreaming about what Santa might bring you… oh wait…just kidding. That was a Hallmark movie I just watched.
False memories aside, the fact stands that gingerbread is delicious. Another fact is that a slow breakfast with friends, family, or alone is possibly the best meal of the day. So brew some coffee and set the table with these holiday inspired scones. You’ll love this grown up version of the classic gingerbread man cookies that we all fondly remember from our real life childhoods 🙂
2 C Flour
2t Baking Powder
1/2 t Baking Soda
1/2C Cold Butter
3 T Honey
1/3 C Gingerbread Coffee Creamer
1/2t Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2t Ground Ginger
1 Egg and 1/2t Water for egg wash
1C Powdered Sugar
1/4t Ground Ginger
2T Gingerbread Coffee Creamer
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, stir together your flour, baking powder, baking soda,salt, and spices. Using a pastry cutter (or a fork), cut in the cold butter until fulling incorporated. You want your mix to look kind of pea-ish here (small pea sized clumps :)) Next, throw in the egg, honey, vanilla, and gingerbread coffee creamer. The coffee creamer is the secret ingredient in this recipe. Its a subtle hint of gingerbread flavor without being overpowering, and gives these scones a little extra oomph in the flavor department 🙂 Mix all of your ingredients until fully combined and turn out onto a floured surface. Pat your dough out into a circle thats about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut your dough like a pie, into 8 equal pieces.
Put onto a greased baking sheet, or parchment paper. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
While your scones are cooling, we can work on the Gingerbread Drizzle. Combine all of your drizzle ingredients in a small bowl and mix together until combined.
Drizzle over your cooled scones and let them sit for about an hour so the drizzle can harden.
Pair these scones with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate (because we can’t act like grown ups all the time ;)) and enjoy!
