I was going to show you my Pumpkin Fritters today with their Vanilla Caramel Sauce, but I'm afraid you are going to have to wait until tomorrow to see those, coz I have something which is just a tiny bit more scrummy to share with you today! (Although, the pumpkin fritters are exceptionally scrummy as well!)
I am mad for cinnamon, which you have probably guessed by now. I just adore it. I love the way it smells. I love the way it tastes, both in sweet and savory goodies. I love crafting with it (cinnamon ornaments on the Christmas tree at Christmas are the best!). I just plain can't get enough of cinnamon.
My mom used to make these Quick Cinnamon Rolls when we were kids as a treat. We loved them. I used to make them for my own children as well. That was one way to put a smile on their faces big time! Then there is my infamous Cinnamon Swirl Tea Bread. People can't get enough of that when I bake it. It's an old recipe that I got from a very dear friend way back when and it's a keeper!
Don't even get me started on the finer qualities of my Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Cake. Just a peek at the photographs are enough to set one to drooling big time, I kid you not!
My Cinnamon Butter Buns are to die for. Likewise my Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. Then there are my Cinnamon Roll Croissants, and my Cinnamon Roll Pluckit Bread . . . Cinnamon Roll Toast . . . etc. the list goes on and on . . . You get the picture I am sure. I am Cinnamon mad!
If there is one thing I like as much as Cinnamon and am crazy for . . . it is scones! I love, Love, LOVE scones! And I don't care how you say it!! I'll eat them no matter how you pronounce the word! A scone is a beautiful thing . . .
But when you combine the two loves . . . Cinnamon . . . and Scones, well . . . you've just died and gone to heaven. There is no other way to put it.
Bake them. Today. You will be glad that you did. And now back to your regular programming.
*Cinnamon Roll Scones*☺
Sprinkle about 2/3 of this mixture over top of the butter, pressing it lightly to help it adhere. Roll up from the long side as if you were rolling up for a cinnamon roll. Press the roll into a rectangle which is 10 inches long by 3 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches tall. Cut in thirds and then cut each third in half diagonally into a triangle. Transfer to the baking sheet. Lightly butter the top of each triangle and sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon sugar.
Whisk together the icing ingredients until you have a thick yet drizzable icing. Drizzle this decoratively over the scones. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
