If you plan on enjoying Mother’s Day brunch at home this weekend, put in a strong hint for a batch of these fantastic scones (click here for the printable PDF), created by guest contributor Kate and her husband Jonathan. When Kate and I last met up for dinner, she brought me a small fleet of the crystallized ginger variety (shown; crystallized ginger) and they were fabulous; buttery, crunchy on the outside, and the sugary ginger added the perfect kick. Even Jon, typically a pillar of resistance against late night snacking, couldn’t resist sampling when I arrived home with the goods.
If ginger isn't your thing, Kate & Jonathan's recipe offers other fruit substitution suggestions.
UPDATE: We learned of a typo in the recipe. The curry powder (previously listed in the ingredients but not the recipe) is mixed with the dry ingredients in step 3. We have corrected the PDF. Thanks!
