Glazed Cinnamon Scones

These were a fun breakfast that I made for the family on a Saturday that we weren't running out the door! These scones didn't take a lot of time, rising and punching the dough... just mix it up and you are ready to roll. Such a delicious treat to start the day and we had a few left over so that we could have a sweet treat for a snack later!

Glazed Cinnamon Scones
(recipe found on pinterest via

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 egg, separated
3 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup buttermilk (or 1/3 cup milk mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice)

Crumb Topping:
1-2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Glaze Ingredients:
1 cup powdered sugar
1-3 teaspoons milk (enough to make a glaze)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Separate the egg white and yolk. Set the egg white aside. In a separate bowl, mix egg yolk, honey and buttermilk. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Form dough into a ball on a floured surface. Roll or pat out to half an inch in thickness and eight inches in diameter. Cut into eight equally-sized pieces. Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Whisk the egg white until froth forms and brush over the tops of scones. Mix sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over egg white topped scones. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Mix together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until glaze forms. Drizzle over scones after they bake.
