How was your week? Mine was very quiet. I did go to Zumba on Wednesday night! That was the highlight of my week. Otherwise I’ve been just hibernating when I come home from work. That seems pretty sad!
Let’s talk salad or a quick second. Do you eat salad year round? I do not. Shame on me! We need healthy food and fiber all year round so I should eat salad in the winter. But I can’t. I need some warm comforting food when it’s so cold. I have seen tons of delicious salad recipes that I want to try but I can’t seem to force myself to make them. Since the groundhog said there would be six more weeks of winter I guess I could wait until winter is over then really go wild with the salads once spring hits…I think that’s a good plan.
Now let’s talk about something sweet…scones. They are so good. They are perfect with a cup of coffee, tea or a glass of milk. They are so so delicious!
I made these scones one of the days we were home due to the extreme cold weather. These were eaten in a minute.
Glazed Cinnamon Scones
- 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
Crumb Topping Ingredients
- 1-2 Tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 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.
Funny how I have no problem eating sweets all year round…
