Recipe~ Cinnamon Roll Scones With Vanilla Glaze

I came across this recipe over the weekend from a fellow blogger (name being) Katie. She always seems to have just what I'm looking for (usually on a Friday night) for my Saturday morning cravings.

The original name of these sweet little treats are called "Quick, no rise-cinnamon buns" but I renamed them a bit for the slight change in ingredients making the texture a bit more "scone" like. Be aware though these are ridiculously good, their super easy, and they go really fast.

Cinnamon Roll Scones With Vanilla Glaze


2 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk (or milk)

2 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

For the glaze: 
1 cup powdered sugar
tablespoons milk (or water)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 

Sift the flour and then add baking powder, salt and 1/4 cup sugar. Cut in the butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. (I just use my clean hands until I feel pea sized crumbles)  Beat the egg and the milk in separate bowl and add to flour mixture; mix just until combined. 

Turn out the dough onto floured counter and roll out into a 1/4 inch thick round disk. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the top.  Roll the dough like a jelly roll and cut it into 1 inch slices. Place on a well greased glass pan (like a 9x13) and sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 400 for 14-18 minutes. Note: Mine only took 15 minutes max.

Remove from oven and let set for a couple minutes while you make your glaze. Drizzle glaze over the top and serve right away. 

A little something extra: We spread a little "Brummel and Brown Natural Yogurt Butter" over the top and it took these beauties over the top.
