Lemon Ginger Scones

3/4 c buttermilk
1 egg
2 c all purpose flour
3/4 c whole wheat flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c butter
1/2 c crystallized ginger
1/2 c candied lemon peel
1 lemon’s worth of zest
Another tbsp of sugar

First! Preheat the oven to 375 F. Put the buttermilk and the egg in a bowl and beat them until they’re sorry. Put the dry ingredients, minus the fruit, in a different bowl and mix up real good. Cut in the butter. Add the fruit, then mix again. Add the buttermilk and egg mixture, then knead until the moment you start to wonder why you went through all the trouble of cutting in the butter, and not a second longer! Condense into one large patty about 2″ thick. Score the top with a knife in eight slices, but do not separate yet. Dust with a tablespoon of sugar. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and cook for 25-30 minutes.

Second! Eat them. yummy!
