Sailor Approved Cinnamon Scones

Before the guys went underway, I wanted to bake something that would be hearty enough for them to take on the ship that wouldn’t melt, and would still be delicious.  Although Pinterest is great, I have been using the website Supercook to help me find recipes that can utilize the ingredients I already have in the house.  I was sick of finding recipes on Pinterest that looked delicious but required one obscure ingredient that I didn’t have on hand.  So Supercook has been a lifesaver.  Most recently, I found a Scone Recipe that we all enjoyed.  This recipe didn’t include much flavor however, so I doctored it a little by adding cinnamon and a glaze on top.

Scones:

2 1/2 Cups Flour

1 Tablespoon Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

8 Tablespoons Butter (1 stick)

1/3 Cup Sugar

2/3 Cup Milk

Approximately 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon (or to taste)

  • Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  • Cut up the stick of butter, and add it to the mixture.  I didn’t have a pastry blender, so I used my fingers to press the butter into the mixture.  Do this until it looks like fine crumbs that stick together when pressed.
  • Add Sugar to the mix by tossing.
  • Then, add milk and stir until a dough forms.  This dough may still be crumbly.
  • Next, knead the dough on a floured surface until it forms into a ball.
  • Pat the dough into a circle about 1-1 1/2 inches thick.  Then cut into wedges.
  • Place the wedges onto a greased pan and bake for 12 minutes at 425 Degrees or until the edges turn golden brown.
  • Let scones cool before adding glaze.

Once the scones were complete, I noticed that although they were nice and moist, they lacked much flavor.  So, I added a quick little glaze on top.

Glaze:

1/2 Cup Sugar

1 Tablespoon Milk

1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

  • Mix all three ingredients together in a small bowl.
  • Heat the mixture in the microwave for 10 seconds to help make it easier to spread (if needed).
  • Then, I just used a fork to drip drizzle the glaze over the cooled scones.

When I make these again, I would like to add in some chocolate chips!

Enjoy!
