Kim’s Favorite Scones – Cinnamon Oat

scones

I tend not to make scones very often, even though I looooove them.  But these scones are especially scrumptious  – with a simple, but yummy flavor.  The gals in my Bible study can all testify that these were pretty darn yummy this morning.  Why don’t I make scones very often?  Well, probably because of the words in every scone recipe that say “cut in the butter.”  I don’t know why, but I just don’t like cutting in butter.  Although, I must admit that this task became exponentially easier when I got a pastry blender for Christmas last year.  Anyway, enjoy this recipe and believe me, with one bite, all those painful cutting in butter memories will disappear. 🙂

Cinnamon-Oat Scones

Ingredients:

1 1/2 C. all purpose flour

3/4 C. oats

1/4 C. packed brown sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 C. butter

1/2 C. milk

Topping: 1 TBS. butter (melted), 1 TBS. sugar, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 375 F.  Lightly grease cookie sheet.  In medium bowl, mix flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon.  With a pastry blender or fork, cut in 1/2 C. butter until mixture is crumbly.  Add milk all at once.  Stir just until ingredients are moistened.

2.  On floured work surface, gently knead dough 5 or 6 times.  Place dough on cookie sheet and press into a 6 inch circle, about 1-inch thick.  Brush top with 1 TBS. melted butter.

3.  In a small bowl, mix 1 TBS. sugar (I like to use raw sugar for topping) and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon and sprinkle over top of dough.  Cut into 8 wedges and separate.
