Cinnamon Sugar Scones

Sorry for the delay.

















Sorry to keep you waiting on these scones, but believe me, they are worth waiting for. I am working on a client 18 miles from my house and with DC traffic that means if I do not leave my house by 6:30 in the morning it will take me well over an hour to get there. I am not used to waking up at 5:30 in the morning to go to work, so I have been tired and not really in the mood to do anything when I get home from work. So without further adieu here is a tasty recipe for cinnamon sugar scones which are very similar to snickerdoodles. I loved these scones and so did my friends. I used the basic scone recipe that was given to me by my boyfriend's mom and modified the flavors. I am sure you will love this recipe!

Miniature Cinnamon Sugar Scones
recipe adapted from Teresa Miller

Scones:

2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/4 cups whipping cream (heavy cream)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon (by hand). Pour in whipping cream. Mix or knead by hand, just until combined (about 45 second). Mix will be sticky. Flour surface. Divide dough into two sections and pat into two rounds, each approximately four inches. Note: Score each round first with a knife into 4ths , then 8ths. Then cut and put on a greased large cookie sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes. Let cool five minutes, then glaze.

Icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 - 2 tablespoons milk


Mix together until a thin icing consistency and pour or drizzle over warm scones. If you are not getting the consistency you want then just add a little more milk.
