these are kind of like i’m-sorry-scones, for abandoning you the last week. but I thought vanilla glazed mini-cinna scones sounded cuter.
I was in Germany, busy dealing with this.
so can you blame me?
go preheat the oven.
I made these for my intern (tomorrow is her last day, boo) but I think they’re going to make a somewhat regular appearance in my kitchen because they are so. silly. delicious.
mini-cinna scones with vanilla glaze
3 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cups butter, room temperature
1 cup buttermilk
3 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups confectioner sugar
1/4 cup whole milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
dash of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 425.
In large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Peel the stick of butter with a knife into thin layers (like a carrot, but more fun) and knead into the dry mixture. Add vanilla and buttermilk.
Divide into four and pat into 5 inch round circles. Then cut up into triangles, or really, whatever shape you’d like. Go crazy.
Brush a teensy layer of melted butter over the surface of the scones and sprinkle sugar on top.
Bake for 15-17 minutes.
I think I hear your oven beeping.
