  • 5 Stir in buttermilk, ginger and white chocolate chips (or chunks) until dough leaves side of bowl and forms a ball.
  • 6 Divide dough in half.

  • 12 Cut surface of dough into 8 wedges, making cuts 1/4 inch deep (do not cut into lemon curd).

  • 19 Store scones in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • 20 *Note:.
  • 21 Melting Chocolate.
  • 22 Melt chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, not boiling, water (too high a temperature changes the flavor and color).
  • 23 Speed up melting by first cutting the chocolate into small pieces, so that more surface area is exposed to the heat.
  • 24 Stir chocolate constantly while melting to keep the temperature consistent throughout.
  • 25 TIPS: Make sure the melting pan does not touch the water in the bottom pan or it will become too hot.
