3 Cup Wheat Flour
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt
4 Ounce Candied Ginger
3 Tsp Lemon Zest
1 Tbsp Ginger Root
10 Tbsp Butter
3/4 Cup Buttermilk
1 Tbsp Suga


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl vigorously whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Stir in the candied ginger, lemon zest, and fresh ginger until evenly mixed.

Create a well in the center of the flour, pour in the melted butter and the buttermilk.

Gently mix with a wooden spoon until the flour mixture is just moistened.

Don't over-mix! The mixture should look very shaggy.

Divide the mixture into two balls, and flatten each onto a floured surface into a 1-inch thick, 6-inch wide circle.

Slice each round into 6 wedges.

Transfer to the parchment paper-lined baking sheet, spacing at least an inch apart.

Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Bake for 18-20 minutes.

Cool on a rack for 5 minutes before eating.

To store, allow first to cool to room temperature, then seal in a freezer bag.
