Lemon Ginger Scones - Flour Bakery Cookbook
Lemon Ginger Scones

My friend Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet in really cold and snowy Connecticut is forming a support group. Those who can't stop baking from Joanne Chang's new book, Flour. The book was sold out for some time on Amazon (it's back in stock now), but I found a copy last night at my local bookstore. Whoo hoo!

Lemon Ginger Scones - Flour Bakery Cookbook
I immediately went home, threw on some PJs and curled up with this bestseller. It's really pretty and practically every page is tagged! I love that every recipe has scale measurements too! :)

This morning I made the Lemon Ginger Scones. The recipe makes 10 scones but I scooped them out with a small ice cream scoop and got 23 small scones.

While warm, a lovely lemon glaze is poured on top. I used my dad's Meyer lemons. Yum!

I've heard good things about that cookbook and I just happen to be in a very scone mood lately. I'm sure the lemon/ginger combination is outstanding!

I think I'd have to join Flour Anonymous, too. (I'm just glad I don't live near enough to Flour 1, 2 or 3 to go there more than once in a while.) I've made the buttermilk scones and the oatmeal scones from this book - both excellent - and the apple snacking spice cake, which is amazing. These might have to be next.

I have that book too and Mary has inspired me to start baking from it as soon as possible :) Your scones look perfect!

Everything from this book looks soooo good...and these scones are no exception. But do I need another baking book? Rhetorical question...

You've done it again! I am so hungry!

Mary said... [Reply to comment]

I am so glad you have joined the dark side with me and got the book...I can't decide between the apple snacking cake and cookie for today's storm...perhaps both?

Mmmmmmmmmmm! Those look AMAZING!

Yummy! You wouldn't know the calories per serving?

@The Path Traveled Um, no one should have that data. ha ha. There are almost 2 sticks of butter in this and 1/2 cup of heavy cream. I wouldn't count calories on this baby.

I've got to stop looking at your blog at night - it's killing me! I'm starving right now. These look delicious!

BTW - loving the photography too. The texture between the scones, the lemon glaze, the plate they're sitting on and the table the plate is sitting on...all just fabulous textures...

Sign me up for Flour anonymous! I was at the book release for the book when I lived in Boston. Joanne Chang is simply the sweetest person. Now that I'm in CT I have to make my BF hide the book from me or I'd be eating sweet treats morning, noon, and night.

Check out my post on the chunky lola cookies, and make those next!

I'm digging it out to make these scones!

I have heard nothing but great things about that cookbook. I tried to get it from the library but apparently everyone else is trying to do the same and the wait list is 21 people long! I guess I have a while to wait :-)

OK - this is why I love you girl. I was about to make these today and could not find crystallized ginger at my local store. I am leaving them for next weekend and now that they got your seal of approval, I can't not make them. But my dad doesn't have a meyer lemon tree so mine may not taste as good as yours.

Mary, I miss baking! Can I come over and bake with you sometime? Or I could just pick up some scones :)

Patricia Scarpin said... [Reply to comment]

They look delicious, Mary! So tiny and cute! I'll be trying this recipe soon - tks for letting me know how great they turned out!

Liz said... [Reply to comment]

I just got my book the mail today! It just might be my goal to bake every recipe in that book. Thanks for mentioning the book. I'm in total awe of Joanne Chang. Can't wait to see you post more creations from her book!

glad to hear this book's a winner. i've had a copy for a few weeks, but haven't baked from it yet. these scones look like a good starting point!

I made these scones with some dried lavender, and they were delicious!

I made the Coconut Lime Tart and it was to die and go to heaven good!! The filling was so creamy I could not believe it. That book is the best!

Lacey @ dishfolio said... [Reply to comment]

Wow, these look delicious! Great photos, too! We'd love to see your submissions at dishfolio.com!

Besides the glaze, did you notice much of a difference in taste/texture compared to the La Brea ginger scones you posted? Which one do you like better?

elizabeth said... [Reply to comment]

You've made a lot of meyer lemon desserts. Can you share what your favorites are? I just got a huge box of meyer lemons from my mom's tree in CA.

The Food Librarian said... [Reply to comment]

@elizabeth Elizabeth, Unfortunately, I have a terrible taste memory. I think the La Brea Bakery is more gingery. However, the lemon glaze is lovely on this one. I enjoy them both! - mary

The Food Librarian said... [Reply to comment]

@elizabeth I love everything meyer lemon! :) The LA Times upside down meyer lemon cake is good as well as the Martha Stewart lemon curd cake. I'm going to do a Lemon Week next week on the blog! :) - mary

I made the glazed lemon cakes from Everyday Food and they were good, although they turned out flat-topped for me at altitude. I came across this recipe for lemon buttermilk bars and was wondering if it might come close to your beloved surfas bars, but probably not. Those lavender lemon bars sound great! Hope you get and share the recipe sometime.
