When I developed the cinnamon scone recipe for my latest cozy release, MURDER WITH CINNAMON SCONES, it became a favorite. I've made it multiple times. I hope you like it too!
Daisy's Cinnamon Scones
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
1/3 cup granulated sugar plus 2 tablespoons
1 teaspoon cinnamon (1/2 teaspoon in dough and 1/2 teaspoon mixed with 2 tablespoons sugar)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) grated unsalted butter (I let it sit out 5-10 minutes before grating)
3/4 cup cinnamon chips
1/3 cup ground pecans
1 large egg
3/4 cup reduced fat buttermilk
In a large mixer bowl, stir together flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add grated butter to flour mixture and beat it in. Stir in cinnamon chips and pecans.
In a separate bowl whisk the egg with the buttermilk, then mix into flour dough with mixer. Scoop out eight large scones (I use a 1/4 cup scoop or measuring cup with handle) and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake 17-19 minutes at 400 degrees until golden brown.
