Cinnamon Bun Scones

I was visiting Kelli at There's No Place Like Home, when I came across this recipe for scones. I was stopped in my tracks at how delicious they looked. So after reading the ingredients to make sure I had everything, I set out to make them. I have to tell you they were so easy to make and their taste is AMAZING! And they look so pretty on my grandmother's dessert plates. :> )

Thanks, Kelli......this one's a keeper! :> )

For this recipe, you will need:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick or old fashioned oats
10 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salk
8 tablespoons butter, chilled and cut into pieces
3/4 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup pecans (optional)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 teaspoons orange juice or milk

1. Heat oven to 425F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, 8 tablespoons of sugar (set aside remaining 2 tablespoons for later), baking powder and salt; mix well. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In small bowl, combine milk, egg and vanilla; blend well. Add to dry ingredients all at once; stir with fork or rubber spatula until dry ingredients are moistened. In small bowl, combine remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar with the pecans and cinnamon; mix well. Sprinkle evenly over dough in bowl; gently stir batter to swirl in cinnamon mixture. (Do not blend completely.) Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls, 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.

3. Bake 11 to 13 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to wire rack; cool 5 minutes. in small bowl, combine powdered sugar and enough juice or milk for the desired consistency; mix until smooth. Drizzle over top of warm scones. Serve warm.

Thank you, Father, for all of Your provisions. I am so grateful for the food that we have, when so many go hungry!

I will HAVE to make some, and just spend a little more time on the treadmill. :)
Maybe I'll eat them while I'm ON the treadmill. Yeah, that'll work. LOL
