For New Years breakfast, I also made gingerbread scones for everyone to enjoy! I have never made anything gingerbread before, and I have also never attempted to make scones prior to this and I have to admit I was a little intimidated. However, I am proud to say they turned out perfectly and were certainly a hit with the crowd! I am actually going to make another batch today so that I can have yummy breakfasts throughout the week!

Adapted from The Village Cook
2 cups flour
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup softened butter
1 egg yolk (reserve white)
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup milk
Cream cheese frosting
In a bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In another bowl, mix the egg yolk, molasses, butter and milk.
Gently combine the two mixtures, being careful not to over mix.
Flatten dough into a 1 inch thick portion and cut into triangles or circles.
Arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet 1 inch apart.
Brush with the reserved egg white and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake in a preheated 400 oven for 8-12 minutes.
Remove while still slightly soft.
Let cool and drizzle with frosting.
