I love scones. I also love ginger and almonds so I think I'm going to like these. I like the fact that this recipe uses buttermilk. I'm definitely making these to have with my tea. I'm a fan of dried fruit too. These scones seem packed with flavor and remind me of Christmas with everything in them. I can imagine this tasting delicious.
