My baking experiment #98 – cinnamon sugar scones

Haven’t baked in a week! Have been pretty busy last week with a friend visiting from out of town, then driving down to Houston over the weekend to visit the in-laws.

I have been indulging in yummy desserts these past few days: Peppermint & Key Lime Cheesecakes from the Cheesecake Factory, yummy cookies from Collin Street Bakery in Corsicana, bought 3+ lbs of chocolate from the Russell Stover factory store, and the local Kroger was having a bakery sale so i got their cheesecake, chocolate cake, and chocolate cannoli.

Since i have bunch of desserts at home, i thought i’ll make something sweet for breakfast: cinnamon sugar scones:


  • 1 cups flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 Tbsp butter, cubed
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar


  1. Heat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Add flour, baking powder, and salt into mixing bowl and mix well.
  3. Mix in butter using fingers until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  4. Add sugar and milk and use fork to stir mixture into dough.
  5. Form dough into ball, then sprinkle some flour onto counter and roll out dough ball into circle.
  6. Cut circle into 8 wedges and place wedges onto cookie sheet.
  7. In small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar to taste; then lightly sprinkle over scones.
  8. Bake 10-12 minutes until tops turn golden brown.

These scones are so yummy! Crispy on the outside, tender & flaky on the inside. They taste like a cinnamon-roll biscuit. Very easy to make too; takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Perfect for breakfast or afternoon snack, great with a cup of coffee 🙂
