With every season of Downton Abbey, I’d try a different scone recipe. Set in the Roaring Twenties, season 5 featured fabulous costumes. I thought a sassy scone recipe would suit this era.
I whipped up a batch of scrumptious lemon-ginger scones that I think even the exacting Dowager Countess of Grantham would enjoy. If you are a lover of ginger you will adore these scones which are bursting with big chunks of crystalized ginger. The scones offer tantalizing bits of spice in every bite, just like the spicy drama of every episode. The recipe is adapted from Nancy Silverton’s Pastries from La Brea Bakery.
