Cinnamon Scones

cinnamon scone

ingredients:

1/2 cup cream
2 cups self-raising flour (all purpose)
½ cup light brown sugar
½ cup butter
1 egg
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 pinch of salt
For icing
½ cup icing sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3-4 tsp water

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
Grease baking sheet.


Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt in another bowl.


Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.


Combine egg with cream and gently stir into flour mixture until moistened.


IMPORTANT: knead dough briefly, no more than 10 times.


Shape dough into an 8-inch round loaf. cut into 8 wedges and separate slightly. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

In a separate bowl, start with the icing (confectioner’s)sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon and add a little bit of the water at a time until a smooth icing is formed. Brush or drizzle the icing onto the cooled scones

Cook’s notes: these are the first scones I have ever made, they turned out really nice, although M didn’t listen to me and though I had made really large soft cookies, then wondered why I put butter on the one I gave to him. The recipe is my own based on dozens of recipes for different flavoured scones. I was desperate for a Starbuck’s Cinnamon Chip scone that you get in the US but not here so I went my own way and I think it turned out pretty good and the house smell of cinnamon, fantastic.

p.s. sorry about the poor image quality, it was too dark to get a proper picture.

They were lovely, but you could do with making them a little less crumbly at the end, dd1 ended up with more crumbs than scone, more binding butter/marg? possibly?
