This is a half version of the original recipe. I bought the book right when it came out and the original full version called for 1/4 cup cinnamon and 1/4 cup ginger which was probably an error. The original recipe also made a very soft dough, so I originally just dropped the scones from a 1/3 cup measure. Now I use half the buttermilk and the dough is workable and can be punched. I've also reduced the spices to 1 tablespoon of each which is still plenty!
