Chocolate Gingerbread Scones



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with silpat or lightly grease.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and ginger.
  3. Using a fork or pastry blender, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the chocolate chips and stir with a fork just to mix them in.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the molasses, egg, buttermilk and vanilla.
  5. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir lightly and quickly with a fork until the dough is evenly moistened.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface. Divide the dough in half and pat the dough into 2 circles of equal size. Use a knife and cut each circle into 8 equal pieces.
  7. Transfer the scones to baking sheets. Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle heavily with coarse sugar.
  8. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes.
