*SNAP* . . . Ginger Scones! June 27, 2013

IMGP3008bI enjoy experimenting in the kitchen.

Once, while baking Ginger Snaps for a party, I substituted a few key ingredients.  When the Snaps came out of the oven, they didn’t “snap.”

I shared them anyway . . . calling them Ginger Scones.

How’s that for Yankee Ingenuity?

Since I could not re-create the experiment if I tried, I’ll share my Great Aunt Edie’s recipe for Ginger Snaps and see if you can transform them into yummy “Ginger Scones.”

If you succeed, please send me your recipe.

Ginger Snaps

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
4 Tbsp. molasses
1 egg
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. ginger

Cream shortening and sugar. Add molasses and egg. Beat well. Add sifted dry ingredients. Beat until smooth.

Roll into small balls and roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

Aah . . . that’s yummy!

Have you experienced any notable experiments in the kitchen?  Did they result in Happy Accidents or Dismal Disasters?

Did you have to call for back up?

Do tell!
