I added a little ground cloves to the spices when I made this and they were delicious. I served them with tea for an enjoyable breakfast. I will make these again.

A great combination of flavors, nothing quite like the aroma of cinnamon and spice filling the kitchen. So inviting, had us anticipating. Loved the scones,they were perfect with a morning cup of coffee. Recipe already tucked close at hand all set to make for the next weekend company. I'm betting it will make for their first Gingerbread scones too!
