Sunday scones and coffee

>> Sunday, September 13, 2009

After lazily lounging in bed for hours this morning listening the the rain I tempted myself to get up craving of a cup of coffee and a homemade cinnamon scone.

Scones are actually really simple to make and I would bet you have all the ingredients on-hand already. Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees and you are almost done before you even get started.

What you need:

Either a cookie sheet or a muffin pan (I use a muffin pan)
A large and small mixing bowl
1 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 large egg
3/4 cup heavy cream
A stick of butter (you will use 6 tsp)
Cinnamon, spice and everything nice

In the large bowl, mix your flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Cut your stick of butter into pea sized chunks and add to the dry mixture and fold to evenly coat all the butter. In your small mixing bowl, combine the egg and cream and whisk together until blended. Pour into the dry mixture and fold together with a spatula until your dry mix is just moist.

This next part is up to you... I add in cinnamon and allspice because I love them but you can add in lemon or orange zest, raisins, etc. to make the recipe your own.

With your hands, knead the mix into a ball making sure everything is sufficiently moist (keep in mind, it will not seem wet, just not powder dry).

Scoop balls of the mix into your muffin pan (should make approximately 8 medium scones).

I keep vanilla syrup on hand for my coffee so I brushed some on the tops of each scone, sprinkled with more cinnamon and all spice and a pinch of sugar. You can also brush with cream or your favorite liquor which is also a delicious option.

Pop in the oven for 13-15 minutes and you will be enjoying your scones in no time. See, simple!

Serve with a delicious cup of coffee or a latte for maximum enjoyment.

I love rainy Sundays!
