Notes:

*I froze the scone dough (already cut into triangles) for an hour before cooking, this keeps the scones from "spreading" too much in the oven - but you do not have to freeze - it's just personal preference.

*I have a Dacor Convection Oven and found that 425 degrees on convection bake was too high.  I cooked the second batch at 400 for 18 minutes and thought they turned out much better! (But as always, oven temps and cooking times vary!)

*I brushed the top of the scones with melted unsalted butter and spinkled with sugar before baking

*For the Chocolate Chip and Candied Ginger Scones...I added 1 1/4 cups of Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chips and 1 cup chopped Candied Ginger.

These scones are DELICIOUS, they are moist but with that dense consistency you expect in a scone!  Can't wait to make some savory ones soon!!!!

Wow, gorgeous. I can see the early morning light in those photos. I bet it was quiet as people were biting into those, until the ooh and aaaahs started.
