Ingredients

  • Scone dough:

  • 2

    C all-purpose flour

  • 2

    tsp baking powder

  • ½

    tsp baking soda

  • ½

    tsp salt

  • ½

    C unsalted butter, cold

  • 1

    egg, separating the egg white and yolk

  • 3

    tbsp honey

  • ½

    C buttermilk

  • Topping:

  • 2

    tbsp granulated sugar

  • ½

    tsp ground cinnamon

  • Glaze (optional):

  • 1

    C powdered sugar, sifted

  • 1-3

    tsp milk

  • ½

    tsp vanilla

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat. 2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. I use my hand for this, it's a lot easier! 3. In a separate bowl, mix egg yolk, honey and buttermilk. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. 4. Form dough into a ball on your Silpat lined baking sheet. Pat the ball out to half an inch in thickness and eight inches in diameter. Using a pizza cutter, cut into eight pieces. 5. Whisk the egg white until froth forms and brush over the tops of scones. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle on top. 6. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. 7. (Optional - Mix together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until glaze forms. Drizzle over scones.)
