I remember one time growing up, my mom wanted me to try a scone, and I refused. Why? Because “scone” sounded like STONE and why would I want to eat something whose name sounded like a stone. I swear this is a true story! Sorry, I know you’re not reading this to hear about my childhood, but for some reason that’s the first thing I think of now when I have scones. (insert laughing emoji here.)
Obviously I did eventually decide to try them, and went as far as creating a few of my own recipes for various scones. Brown sugar cinnamon scones are one of my family’s favorites, and I’m so happy to share this recipe with you! We enjoy them as a breakfast treat or in the afternoon with a little coffee or tea.
Full recipe and ingredients at bottom.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Make sure you freeze a stick of butter for an hour or two ahead of time.
My little man had a fun time helping me with this treat! Sister was suppose to help, but she wouldn’t wake up from nap.
Combine all of your dry ingredients. Cut the butter into cubes then use a pastry cutter, two forks, or a blender to combine it with your dry ingredients. It should look like course oatmeal by the time you’re done.
Now that, that’s done, add in vanilla and egg. Then slowly add in the cream, starting with a quarter cup then adding a tablespoon at a time just until the flour sticks together. For this part I only mix with a fork so that I don’t accidently add too much cream
Turn the dough out on a floured surface, divide into two balls, and flatten in to about 3/4 inch thick (I use my hands.) Now cut each disk into six equal pieces.
Lay the dough out on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Drizzle with cinnamon glaze and enjoy!
