We like to host Thanksgiving. It’s a cacophony of four generations of family around the table, everyone talking, eating, complaining, singing together. Plus, if you host, you benefit from the leftovers (sandwiches, turkey-sweet potato pie, deep dish pot pie). While I cook, the kids and their dad take the giant beast dog on a walk. This year, they can have these as a snack while they tromp. You can make the dough the night before and stick these in the oven with your turkey if you like. You can also slather them with maple butter or with cranberry sauce and melted cheddar. Or eat them plain.*
*This does not include my husband, who does not like scones, berries or their dried counterparts, nor ginger. He can save room for turkey.
