TWD: Cream Scones

Ah scones. Lovely, yummy fresh-from-the-oven, warm scones.

This week's TWD recipe is the Cream Scone. I do believe I've made these before, in error, since I think that week was supposed to be some kind of biscuit, but in my haste or stupor, I misread the selection.

This time around, there was no mistake.



Instead of currants, I added my favorite -- mini cinnamon chips. Then, before baking, I brushed the tops with milk and sprinkled on heavy-duty sugar crystals. Oh yeah.




While the recipe made twelve scones, I immediately took half the dough, already cut, and stuck it in the freezer. Come next Saturday morning, we will feast again on cinnamon chip cream scones.



This week's hostess was Lynne of
Cafe LynnyLu. Do try this scone recipe, which you will find on Lynne's blog. Then, while you are munching away, perhaps with a cup of tea, read about the scones from the other TWD bakers.

I think I am the last person to try cinnamon chips. I'm buying some tomorrow! They look delish. My scones are in the freezer waiting for company this weekend. I love it when I have a yummy in the freezer. I especially like having a roll of World Peace Cookies ready to bake.

I love cinnamon chips that those were a good choice. Your scones look so perfect. I was already worried I had handled mine too much so i did want to work the dough even more to get them perfect.

Cinnamon chips and sugar on top sounds perfect! We don't get cinnamon chips here, unfortunately.
