Cinnamon and Sugar Scones

This was my first time making scones.  This was a very simple recipe to start with and the kids loved them.  They ate'em all, licked their fingers and asked for more. 

  • 2 c. flour
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 3 T. honey
  • 1/3 c. buttermilk
  • 1 to 2 T. turbinado or sugar
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1 c. powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 to 3 T. milk
  • 1/2 t. vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine dry ingredients and cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Set aside. Separate egg and set aside white. In a separate bowl combine yolk, honey and buttermilk.  Add to dry ingredients and mix until combined. Form dough into a ball.  On a floured surface roll the dough into an 8 inch in diameter circle that is about 1/2 an inch thick.  (I rolled mine on parchment paper then just picked it up and set it on the baking pan.  You could also roll or pat it out on a greased baking pan so you don't have to worry about how you are gonna move it after you have rolled it out.) Place on a greased baking sheet.  Cut into eight equal wedges. Beat egg white until frothy and brush on top.  Sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar mixture.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.  Mix together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until glaze forms.  You can drizzle over the whole thing, or over each scone (like I did) after you put the scone on a serving plate.  I like to drizzle it over the scone on the plate get more glaze!
