This is a very old recipe. Serve these flavorful scones warm with butter. They may be a little heavy but you can lighten them up by using an egg in place of some of the milk if you like.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cream of tarter, salt, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, nutmeg and ginger. Cut in butter with a fork or pastry blender. Combine milk and molasses in a small bowl; stir into flour mixture until moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly. Roll dough out into a 1/2 inch thick round. Cut out circles with a medium biscuit cutter and place pieces on prepared baking sheet so that they are barely touching.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Move to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving. For soft scones, cover with a dry cloth for 10 minutes. For crisp scones, do not cover.

A great scone! I scaled the recipe down to eight (8) and it worked wonderfully. The molasses favor is very subtle and I would almost recommend adding more. Would this change the consistency? This is not a sweet scone, so those looking for more sweetness might want to jazz it up a bit. Overall, the scones are light and fluffy and would be delicious with any preserves. Apricot comes to mind immediately!

the scones didn't have enough flavor - not enough molasses, not enough spice. they were also too dry as is; I added more milk... rather a disappointment....

These scones are very good. I decreased the cinnamon to 1/4 teaspoon for my fiance and they are still very flavorful. Easy to make- I used my KitchenAid mixer with excellent results. A quick favorite!
