Maeve Greyson’s Hubby’s Cinnamon Scones
Okay people: This has cinnamon AND a bit of a kink…
And here’s the recipe – although I’m kind of having to guess at some of this scribbling. A hand-writing specialist would claim I’ve married a serial killer. Looks like he printed the recipe off a Scottish website and then added his own twists:
2 cups of self-rising flour (OR “all purpose” flour with 3 teaspoons of baking powder)
1/4 stick of butter
1/2 to 3/4 cup sour cream (I love how he writes down his guesstimates – I’m going to have to amend his training)
Pinch of salt (*sigh* – how much is a freakin’ pinch? – I got the eyeroll when I asked this. I’m definitely adding a new chapter to his training)
Some sugar & cinnamon (Some? Are you kiddin’ me? I’m trying to share this with friends. Another eyeroll then he finally said, “about a teaspoon of cinnamon mixed into a tablespoon of sugar”. I ill-timed this project – I have no idea what he’s mesmerized by on t.v.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sift the dry ingredients together (except for the cinnamon & sugar). Cut in the butter with a fork. Add the sour cream and the beaten egg in the center of the mixture. He said, “Make a volcano.” You get the idea. Mix to obtain a soft elastic dough then turn out onto a floured cutting board and roll out til it’s about 1/2″ thick.
Prick the dough with a fork and cut into rounds with a biscuit cutter. His is about 4″ inches in diameter. HIS BISCUIT CUTTER – get your mind back on the scones!
Bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until done. As soon as you remove them from the oven, brush the tops lightly with butter and immediately sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon mixture on top.
YUMMY!!! and no you can’t eat just one.
