Where have all the Cinnamon Scones gone???
My daughter and I just love us a cinnamon scone!! The only problem with this is that they are impossible to find at stores. We did have a good run for a while with Starbucks and Au Bon Pain, but that luck ran out and I was forced to come up with a recipe that would fill our cinnamon scone needs.
And I finally think I did it.
Here is what you will need:
- 2 cups of flour.
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar.
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder.
- ½ teaspoon of baking soda.
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
- ¾ cup of cinnamon chips.
- 1 stick of cold cubed butter.
- ¾ cup of whole milk.
- 1 egg.
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
- 1 cup of powdered sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons of milk
Here is what you will need to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and cinnamon chips.
Next, cut in your stick of cold cubed butter with a pastry cutter.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg and vanilla.
Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and give it all a good mix.
Empty the mixture onto your counter and form into a round disk. Try to be gentle and not work the dough too much. You don’t want your warm hands to melt the butter pieces that you will see throughout the dough.
Cut into 8 triangles and place pieces on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes. Time to mix your powered sugar with the tiny bit of milk and get your sugar glaze ready.
Let them cool for just a minute and then spoon over the glaze.
We like our cinnamon scones warm with extra glaze for dipping. If you plan to store them, let them cool completely and then place them in an airtight container.
Hope you like them…
