As usual, I can not leave a recipe alone, although on this recipe I only changed up the crumb topping and the glaze.  When anything calls for sugar and cinnamon I have to pull out my jar of Trader Joe’s Sugar/coffee/chocolate grinder.  Glory it is good.  I have my basic scone recipe which is really good with mini chocolate chips but they family decided they like this one with the crumb topping and glaze.Image

Glazed Cinnamon Scones

Recipe adapted from The Coupon Project

Before I switched up the recipe I started with this version from Money Saving Mom  

Scone Ingredients:

2 cups flour (I used unbleached, but you could use half whole-wheat, half unbleached)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 egg, separated
3 Tablespoons honey
1/3 cup buttermilk (or 1/3 cup milk mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice)

Crumb Topping (can be adjusted to your liking): or use Trader Joe’s Sugar grinder with dark chocolate, coffee beans and sugar….YUM

1-2 Tablespoons turbinado (or sugar)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Glaze Ingredients (can be adjusted to your liking):

1 cup powdered sugar (you can make your own homemade unprocessed powdered sugar)
1-3 teaspoons milk (enough to make a glaze)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.

Separate the egg white and yolk. Set the egg white aside.

In a separate bowl, mix egg yolk, honey and buttermilk (or milk/lemon juice mixture). Add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.

Form dough into a ball on a floured surface. Roll or pat out to half an inch in thickness and eight inches in diameter. Cut into eight equally-sized pieces.

Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Whisk the egg white until froth forms and brush over the tops of scones. Mix turbinado and cinnamon together and sprinkle over egg-white-topped scones.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.

Mix together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until glaze forms. Drizzle over scones after they bake.
