Cinnamon-Sugar Scones

                

            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

Cinnamon-Sugar Topping:

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

1. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, mix the butter and sugars.

2. Add the milk and mix untill the ingredients are combined together.

3. Finally, mix in the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon) and vanilla extract until the mixture is sticky and looks like the picture above.

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!!!!!!!!!!
