- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together 3/4 cup cream and egg. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Stir in ginger and lemon zest. With a fork, stir in cream mixture until just combined. (The dough should be crumbly; do not overwork.)
- Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface and pat into a 6-inch circle. Cut into 6 wedges and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush tops with 1 tablespoon cream and sprinkle with sanding sugar, if desired. Bake until golden, 16 to 18 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through.

- Whisk buttermilk, egg, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl or measuring cup until thoroughly combined. Add to dry ingredients and mix just until no dry clumps of flour remain; dough will be somewhat sticky.
- Turn dough out onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently press dough together into an even 7-inch circle. Lightly flour your hands if dough is too sticky to shape. Cut dough into 8 triangles using a bench scraper. Space scones 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.
- Whisk egg and water until combined. Gently brush the top of each scone with the egg wash. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
- You can mix by hand or with a food processor or mixer, but be careful not to over blend the dry ingredients. If you over-blend, your scones will be tough and chewy. Put the 7 dry ingredients in a bowl and add the cubes of butter. With your fingers, or with 2 knives, blend the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles a course cornmeal. Some large pieces of butter should remain, this will make your scones light and fluffy. If you are using a processor, pulse briefly. Stir in the ginger bits. Add the milk and work quickly with a fork to incorporate. The dough should be soft and lightly moist. Again, don't over-mix. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and gently pat down until it stands about 1/2-inch thick. Cut into 12 triangles with a dough cutter or a knife and put onto an ungreased baking sheet. Brush the tops of the scones with the egg wash and sprinkle with some sugar. Bake for 12 minutes until golden. Let cool briefly.
WHOLE-WHEAT GINGER SCONES
Coconut oil should really be called butter, but then we'd confuse it with a skin cream. It is the perfect nondairy fat to use for scones and other baked goods. These have the same rich, flaky texture that scones made with butter have, along with a subtle and pleasing coconut flavor.

- Add the coconut oil to the food processor or mixer and pulse several times or beat on low speed until it is distributed throughout the flour and the mixture has the consistency of coarse cornmeal; if you're using a mixer, it will still have some lumps.
