Cinnamon Crunch Scones
I love Scones~I really do~the thing is, I don’t get many opportunities to have scones and its really quite sad because they are so delicious. After months of trying out and creating my own scones and failing miserably, I finally created a recipe that works and on top of that adds some of my favorite spice that I just love to put everything on if I could~you already know that~Cinnamon~DUHHH!!! and yes I just duhhh you lol.
Ohh Scones I have been patiently waiting for you to come in to my breakfast table~and finally here you are~Tender~Crunchy top~every bit as delicious as the scones I have tasted before but my very own~just believe me when I say that I have tried to create scones before and they didn’t turn out well as I hope they would until now~took me months to find the right consistency, the right amount of ingredients~I even remembered one scone recipe I created was so crunchy on the outside but the inside of the scone was doughy and wet and uncook eeeeekkkkk lol. I am very glad that this scone came out the way I wanted it and intended. As you can see I also created a little glaze or sweet gravy as you can see above that compliments the cinnamon crunch scones, my vanilla cinnamon gravy sauce as I call it or you can call it glaze~I like gravy because its going on a recipe for a sweet biscuits that’s a sweet take on Biscuits and gravy hahaha ( Recipe coming Soon)
The One thing I learned from making scones is that~keep all your ingredients cold, flour your work surface and do not over work your dough~I have to thank all the food bloggers for that piece of advice because its really true~not just to scone but to any dough~when cutting the butter to the flour~I use my hands because hands are better than a stand mixer but you can certainly use the stand mixer to incorporate the butter to the flour~make sure the flour mixture looks course pea crumbs.
Don’t go sparingly on the cinnamon/sugar topping~Go nuts~the more you put on top the more crunchy it is and that’s good eats hahaha~and hey everyone loves cinnamon sugar right? I mean that’s the filling for cinnamon rolls don’t forget to brush the tops with heavy cream~Now that I know how to properly make scones I am very excited to be making some variations with this recipe like chocolate chip scones~yummy right? RIGHT? but that’s for another blog entry so stay tuned, more scones is coming your way. Enjoy.
