cinnamon scones.

Cinnamon Scones:

(recipe I cobbled together from various internet and cookbook scone sources)

2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. white sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 c. cold butter

1 egg
3 TBsp. honey
1/3 c. milk

Preheat oven at 350 F. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until it reaches cornmeal consistency. In a separate bowl, mix egg, honey, and milk. Add to the dry ingredients until just mixed. (The trick to scones is not to over work them.)

Cut/roll out/drop scones and put on parchment lined baking sheet. (I make "drop" scones like drop biscuits. Rolling out the dough and cutting it out is too much work for me.) Before putting into oven, sprinkle scones with brown sugar. Bake in oven for 15-ish minutes (depending on how hot your oven runs), or until browned and done.

Add a ton more milk or water (until muffin batter consistency) and these make really good muffins, too, if a little sticky.
