Recipe Directions:
  • Pour gingerbread mix from gift bag or container into a medium bowl. Make a well in center of dry mixture. Combine 1 beaten egg, 2 tablespoons milk, and 1 tablespoon molasses; add to dry mixture. Stir just until moistened. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Quickly knead dough by folding and pressing it gently for 10 to 12 strokes or until dough is almost smooth. Pat or lightly roll dough into a 6-inch circle. Cut into 6 wedges. Place wedges 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with milk; sprinkle with coarse or granulated sugar. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until bottoms are brown. Serve warm. Makes 6 scones.
