Instructions

  • Heat oven to 425 degrees.
  • In large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, ground ginger, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the pears, 1/3 cup of the almonds and the candied ginger; toss. Mix in buttermilk just to blend.
  • Gather into a ball and gently knead 3 or 4 times on lightly floured surface. Pat or roll out 3/4-inch thick. Cut out circles with 2 1/2- to 3-inch round cutter, rerolling scraps as needed.
  • Place on baking sheet, spacing apart. Brush tops with egg, sprinkle with remaining almonds, dividing equally, and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake in center of oven 12 to 15 minutes until springy to the touch and lightly browned. Remove to rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
