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