A sprinkling of sugar tops off these tender treats with a touch of sweetness. I like to serve them hot with butter and jam.—Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated orange zest

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, ginger, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk sour cream and egg; add to dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in orange zest.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Divide dough in half. Pat each portion into a 7-in. circle; cut each into six wedges.
  3. Separate wedges and place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
