Cinnamon mini-scones

This weekend, I hunted through the Dekalb Farmers’ Market for whole wheat pastry flour and vanilla beans so I could make Mama Pea’s Vanilla Bean Mini-Scones. After I made those and Sean and I devoured a lot of them, I decided I needed more, but already used up my $5 tube of 2 vanilla beans. The answer: cinnamon.

So this is a variation on her recipe with one of my favorite spices. I could drink cinnamon. Yum.

You’ll need all of this stuffs.

For Scones:

  • 1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 c. unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 c. margarine (I used yogurt butter–Brummel and Brown)
  • 1/2 c. organic milk
  • 1/3 c. organic sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For Glaze:

  • 1 c. organic powdered sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons organic milk
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Firstly, it’s important to have a Rosie the Riveter baking outfit so you don’t feel like too much of a housewife. See above. Then preheat your oven to 350!The Dekalb Farmers’ Market is awesome. All this flour for $2.31? Yes, please. That’s why I had to make more. Need to use this flour somehow! So first you mix the flours, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Then put chunks of the butter/margarine into the dry mix.

Then you mix the sugar, milk, and cinnamon in a separate bowl/dish/thingy.

The cinnamon, sugar and milk all mixed together.

Then pour the wet mixture into the dry and mush until it forms a dough.

After that, roll it out into a rectangle on a HEAVILY floured board. I tried to do it as pretty as Mama Pea does, but I just couldn’t get it right. And I kept eating the dough.

She says to get it about 1 1/2 inches thick, but I just estimated.

After that, you cut the whole rectangle into 6 even squares. And then cut each square into 4 mini-triangles.

Then transfer them to a sheet pan (CAREFULLY! and with a SPATULA!). Can you tell I messed this one up once before?

Bake at 350 for about 14 minutes. Allow them to cool and make the glaze!

There WAS glaze in here...

Once cooled, drizzle on cinnamon glaze and devour try to save some for later.I’m taking some to work today to try to win over my new coworkers. I’m sure I made myself out to be an annoying, long-story-telling, weirdo. But hopefully this will make up for it!
