2 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp packed brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground ginger
1/3 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, diced
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup low-fat milk
1 large egg, separated
Heat your oven to 400° and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk the molasses, milk and egg yolk together. Put the egg white in a small bowl and set aside. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing till it just comes together. Dump the dough onto a lightly floured board and knead 8 or so times, flatten with your hands into a disk about 8″ wide.
Move to the prepared baking sheet. Cut into 8 wedges and lightly separate them. Beat the egg white until frothy with a fork and then spread lightly on top the wedges with a brush. Liberally sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until browned and smelling good.
