These scones are exactly what you expect: a delicious spiced molasses gingerbread cookie in scone form. Not too sweet and perfect with the drizzled icing or a pat of cream cheese.
These fudgy, cakey cookies are perfect for those of us who love brownies but perhaps don't trust ourselves around a full unguarded pan. My favorite thing about making my own homemade "bake and slice" logs is that it allows you to enjoy these cookies at their peak, ie fresh and warm from the oven, as you need them.
Rich in diced figs and spices, this pudding gives a hint of fruitcakey-ness, but with a flavor that is far superior. The figs give it a mellow, almost honey-like sweetness, and keep it just moist enough to be slightly sticky, but not so sticky that it sticks to your teeth.
