Apricot Ginger Mascarpone Scones

I had some leftover mascarpone cheese after making the brownies listed a couple weeks ago. I found the recipe on Good Life Eats and thought it would go exceptional well with a different flavor profile.

These scones were deliciously light with a perfect exterior crust. They weren't too sweet and they were exceptionally buttery. You will be hard pressed to have these scones last more than a day. Every time you try one, you want to have another.
