amazing and easy cinnamon scones.
Here are the easiest and most delicious scones :) from the Pioneer Woman.dipped in swiss miss dark hot chocolate. I even left out the cinnamon chips and substituted milk for cream. still amazing.
3 cupsAll-purpose Flour
5 teaspoonsBaking Powder
½ teaspoonsGround Cinnamon
2 sticks(1 Cup) Unsalted Butter
¾ cupsHeavy Cream
1 teaspoonVanilla Extract
1 cupCinnamon Chips
1 teaspoonGround Cinnamon
1-½ teaspoonHeavy Cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and baking powder. Cut butter into pieces, then cut into dry ingredients with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cinnamon chips.
Mix together cream, egg, and vanilla extract. Pour into flour/butter mixture, stirring gently with a fork to combine.
Turn onto work surface (mixture will be very crumbly and falling apart.) Gently press together on the sides as you flatten (or roll, with a rolling pin) the top. Form either into a large circle or a large rectangle. Mix together topping ingredients, stirring with a fork. Sprinkle over the top of the dough, lightly pressing.
Cut into wedges (from a circle) or triangles (from a rectangle.) Transfer to a cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely. Serve with coffee.
