Gingerbread Scones

Hello everyone! Have you gotten all of your Christmas menu planning done yet? If not, you should consider adding these scones to your breakfast/brunch! December is prime gingerbread season, so I make tons of gingerbread themed recipes this time of year! Today it’s gingerbread scones- soft and fluffy scones baked to perfection with a delicious glaze to tie them together. You won’t regret this one- enjoy!

Gingerbread Scones Recipe (Makes 8 Scones)


  • 2 cups (240g) all purpose flour 
  • 1 tbsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger 
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 2 tbsp (25g) granulated sugar 
  • 1/2 cup or 1 stick (120g) cold butter cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) molasses 
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) milk 

For the glaze:

  • 1/2 cup (50g) powdered sugar 
  • 1 tbsp melted butter 
  • Milk 


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (218°C)
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, salt and sugar; stir to combine. 
  3. Add the butter to the dry ingredients and cut in with a fork until the mixture is crumbly.
  4. Add the milk and molasses and fold until the dough comes together (it’s ok if it is slightly soft but do NOT add more flour). 
  5. Turn or scrape the dough out onto a piece of plastic wrap; use this to form the dough into a circle (place in the fridge for half an hour to form up if the dough is too soft). 
  6. Once the dough is ready, cut into eight wedges. 
  7. Place the scones on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake them for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and risen.
  8. To make the glaze, mix together the powdered sugar and butter; add enough milk (half a tsp at a time) until the glaze is a pourable consistency. 
  9. Let the scones cool before glazing.
  10. Enjoy!
