Cinnamon Roll Scones
Updated: Sep 6, 2021
Scones...a buttery, flakey and slightly sweet sort of biscuit.
I guess you can say it's kind of like a buttery biscuit, but are more of a pastry.They are delightful in a way where it just sweetens your day a little more. Most scones are sweeter but can be made savory as well.
This recipe in particular is a SWEET one :)
I am obsessed with these. Most people are a little intimidated when it comes to baking bakery style pastries and breads. Scones are very simple to make and it only requires a few ingredients, most of which everyone has in their pantry and fridge.
So, don't skip out on these!
Hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
Cinnamon Roll Scones
Yield: 8-10 scones
2 ¼ cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp kosher salt
6 tbsp unsalted butter, cold, grated
1 ⅓ cups and 1 tbsp heavy cream plus more to brush
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
¾ cup confectioners/powdered sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp milk
¼ tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Mix and toss the grated butter into the flour mixture, so it's evenly distributed. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
Pour in the heavy cream and fold everything together, trying not to overwork. Press the dough on a lightly floured surface, about 9 inch round and cut in fourths and in half again, you’ll end up with 8 triangle pieces. Place the scones on the baking sheet and brush with heavy cream. Bake for about 18 minutes until slightly brown on top.
Glaze- whisk together the powdered sugar, cinnamon, milk and vanilla extract until smooth.
Drizzle the glaze over the top of the warm scones and serve and let it set before serving.
Size can vary, depending on how you want to stretch the dough when you press it for thickness. You can make a rectangle or keep it round and cut in squares, rounds or triangles.
Keep in mind, if you cut into smaller pieces, then you would bake in less time.
10 scones- bake for about 15 minutes
8 scones- 16-18 minutes
