So, I decided to try Cinnamon Scones. And yes, this is my own recipe (an original!) and they tastes soo goood!!! I was criticized earlier about my blog but I wanted to prove who belongs to the blogging world! These sconeshave a defined seet-cinnamon taste. They are also HUGE so 8 is enough for a while. My brother tried them and said they were “really gooood!!” thats like a giant compliment from him! Well enough of my story, here’s the recipe-
“I am entering this Cinnamon-Sugar Scones in the Creative Holiday Recipe Contest hosted by Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and Cookies and Cups!“
Yield- 8 large scones
3 cups of all-purpose flour
1 cup of granulated sugar
1/2-3/4 cup of light brown sugar
1/4 cup of dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon and 3/4 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
5 tablespoons of butter, softened
1/2 cup of milk (I used 1% milk)
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/8-1/4 cup of butter, melted
1/3 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup of light brown sugar
3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
|4. On a lighty floured surface, knead the dough. (Make sure that your hands have flour on them too.)
5. Roll the dough into a circle that is 1/2 and inch thick.(Flour the rolling pin too.)
|6. Using a pizza cutter, cut the circle into 8 triangles. (This happens when you cut the dough in half 4 different times)|
|7. Place the triangles evenly on a piece of parchment paper that is on top of a large cookie sheet.|
|8. Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.
9. Bake the scones for 8-10 minutes. And let them cool for 10-15 minutes on a cooling rack.
|10. Make the Cinnamon-Sugar Topping: In a medium bowl, sift/whisk together the cinnamon, and sugars.
11. Melt the 1/8 cup of butter in a seperate bowl.
|12. Brush the melted butter on the tops of the scones. Then, coat the scones in the Cinnamon-Sugar mixture. (You should do this one scone at a time)
13. Once the scones have been coated and cooled, ENJOY them!!!!!!!!!!
