Cinnamon Bun Scones

 My favorite thing about being home alone (or the first one up) in the morning is making breakfast. When everyone is awake and home there isn’t enough space in the kitchen for me to bake. So today I made Cinnamon Bun Scones for breakfast. They were so delicious! Recipe at the bottom, as always.


Cinnamon Bun Scones (found here)
2 C Flour
1 C Oatmeal
1/4 C + 2 T Sugar
1 T Baking Powder
1/4 t Salt
8 T (1 Stick) Butter
3/4 C Milk
1 Egg
1 t Vanilla
2 t Cinnamon

Glaze:
3/4 C Powdered Sugar
1/4 t Vanilla
3-4 t Milk (I used 4, but I like my glaze a little runny)

Heat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl mix together the flour, oatmeal (you can use quick or old fashioned), 3/4 C sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in room temperature butter. The easiest way to do this is with a pastry knife, but if you don’t have one you can use two regular knives or a fork. In a small bowl combine the milk, egg, and vanilla. Mix it into the dry mixture until just wet. In another small bowl combine the extra 2 T sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the dough and swirl it in. Don’t mix it in completely. Drop onto a cookie sheet in 3/4 cupfuls, or you could use an ice cream scoop. Bake at 425 for 11-13 minutes, or until brown around the edges. Cool for 5 minutes and drizzle with glaze. Enjoy!
