Ann Arbor- Ypsilanti area Parish House Inn  Fall recipes: Pumpkin Ginger scones

You'll love the taste of the crystallized ginger in the moist  scones. There is not a lot of butter in these, so the texture is difereny than the usual scone. Perfect with a cup of tea, bacon and eggs or a snack. Delicious served with the Peach Chai Jam as well.  Enjoy...

½ cup light brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons baking powder
