Serves 12 triangles | Prep Time 15 | Cook Time 15


2 cups flour
3 tablespoons whole, old fashion oats
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons minced uncrystalized candied ginger
1/2 cup diced dried apricots, cut into eight pieces each
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, round ginger, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in the sugar, candied ginger and apricots with your hands to distribute all the ingredients evenly. Add the cup of buttermilk gradually, mixing gently to form a soft dough. Add a couple of more tablespoons, if necessary.

Shape the dough into a ball and knead it briefly on a lightly floured work surface. Divide the dough in half and pat each half into a 1/2-inch thick round, 5 inches in diameter. Cut each round into 6 triangles, and transfer the triangles to an ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheet.

Just before baking, brush the tops of the scones with buttermilk and sprinkle them with sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the scones are light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Our farmers market have some really delicious scones and I thought I would be able to figure out the recipe, but I never did. Along the way I found these scones and my research kind of stopped there.
