Glazed Cinnamon Scones

You know what day it is–Wednesday! The day I bring some form of treat to my co-workers. It was a toss-up today between glazed cinnamon scones and another healthy version of brownies. This won out this week! It looked slightly intimidating, but it was fine once I got rolling. Similar process in making the scones as in my mum’s. I substituted a few things like put less sugar and added in whole-wheat flour to make it a little more healthy. These are delicious. They simply crumble into your mouth as you bite into it. The cinnamon settles nicely with the texture–it’s a keeper. Let’s try it out!

Scone Ingredients
  1. 2 cups flour (1 whole-wheat, 1 regular)
  2. 2 tsp baking powder
  3. 1/2 tsp baking soda
  4. 1/2 tsp salt
  5. 1/3 cup milk
  6. 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  7. 1 egg
  8. 1/2 cup butter
  9. 3 tbsp granulated sugar
Dust Ingredients
  1. 1 tbsp sugar
  2. 1/2 heaping tsp cinnamon
Glaze Ingredients
  1. 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  2. 3 tsp milk
  3. 1/2 tsp maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Let’s first start with the scones. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F and grease up a baking sheet.
  2. Get out a big bowl and put your flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in there. Cut the butter into the dry mixture until it gets crumb-y.
  3. Separate the egg and put the egg YOLK in a separate bowl along with the sugar, milk, and lemon juice. Mix that up.
  4. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix it until it combines (don’t overdo it)
  5. Flour up a surface (I use a cutting board) and put the dough you’ve made into a ball on the surface
  6. Knead it into around 1/2 inch thickness and then cut into eight pieces
  7. Place the eight pieces on the baking sheet
  8. Take out the egg white and whisk it until frothy. Brush it onto the scone pieces
  9. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over the egg-whited scones
  10. Put in oven for 10-11 minutes
  11. While it bakes, let’s make the glaze. Mix the powdered sugar, milk and maple syrup until it forms up properly into a glaze
  12. When the scones are done, let them cool a bit and then drizzle the glaze over
