- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 3 tbsp butter, chopped and very cold
- 5 tbsp buttermilk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 c. grated carrot
- 1 tsp minced candied ginger
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar and stir well to combine.
- Cut butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles very coarse sand. Add the buttermilk and vanilla, stir to combine.
- Add carrot and ginger and stir to distribute well.
- Roll the dough into a ball and then press gently into a disc about an inch thick. Place the disc of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Cut the dough disk into six wedges.
