Ginger Orange Scones is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scones This was honestly the best scones I've ever made. This recipe was so unique, all my family loved it! Even though it did contain ginger which I thought was weird since ginger does have a strong taste to it, it turned out to be the best scones I have tasted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ginger Orange Scones Oh my goodness are these delicious. It takes a little longer than some recipes but don't get discouraged. The time and effort pay off in the end result. My family wants these around all the time to eat on the run or take to work and school.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great spice! I was a little hesitant to try this recipe because ginger is a strong flavor and I didn't know how the Truvia would affect the taste. The scones turned out to be a hit! my friends wanted to know how I made them a bit lighter in calories :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ginger orange scones I am a baker of 20 years and have made these in the past but on a much bigger scale and a lot more time put into it. This is a simple recipe with healthy ingredients that fits diabetics and people with sugar allergies as myself.
