This was my first time using cardamom pods and I found shelling the seeds out of the pods a little more time-consuming than expected, so I may use ground cardamom next time. I was nervous about over-flavoring the batter with the cardamom and erred on the side of caution and used only 1/2 tsp. The flavor combination of ginger and cardamom was very good and I will definitely use the full 3/4 tsp. next time. I used my largest ice cream scoop and got 16 scones.

This recipe is a household favourite! I have made these scones for guests and they can't seem to stop exclaiming over them. The cardamom and ginger balance each other beautifully, and these scones pair beautifully with tea or coffee.
These were easy and delicious! I used pre-ground cardamom.
