Cinnamon toast is a sweet way to start your morning. The mix of sweet sugar and the earthy cinnamon is a flavor combination you can’t help but love. If you’re like me, you have memories of Saturday mornings when one of your parents would make this delicious breakfast treat. The house filling with the sweet smell of cinnamon and sugar.
Unfortunately, there isn’t always the time to make this for breakfast. Don’t worry, you can still get that same delicious cinnamon sugar flavor. All you need is to make a Cinnamon Toast Scone! You can make them the night before and grab one as you head out the door. For an even sweeter treat, you can top with your favorite icing!
Cinnamon Toast Scones
2 cup all purpose flour
4 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (cut into 6 pieces)
3/4 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the butter and work into the flour mixture, using your hands or a pastry blender, until the butter and flour form pea size balls. Add raisins and stir.
Add vanilla, egg and 1/2 cup of the heavy cream. Mix together. If the dough is too dry, continue mixing and adding more cream in small increments until a pliable dough has formed.
Dump dough onto a floured surface and form into about an inch tall rectangle. Cut into triangles. Brush the tops with more heavy cream. In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle mixture on top of scones.
Place on a non-stick baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes. Top with your favorite icing.
