I got rid of a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff! But so much more to get rid of. Donation.
Will I do it again? eh. Probably not.
I love going to garage sales. Apparently, I have liked it a little too much as indicated by the pile of stuff I had to sell. So, from now on, only what I need.
2 cups flour, unbleached
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 egg yolk
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup thick buttermilk or heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar, blended fine in a blender
1 tablespoon half and half
cinnamon sugar for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Use a scone pan. If you don't have a scone pan, some parchment on a cookie sheet will work very nicely.
Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or your fingers until mixture is crumbly and resembles coarse meal.
In a separate bowl, mix egg yolk, sugar and buttermilk. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
If you are using parchment: form dough into a ball and roll 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. Move shapes onto parchment.
If you are using a scone pan: (yes, I have one and I love it): Spoon mixture equally into the triangular compartments.
Place parchment on baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.
In a blender place sugar and grind for a few moments. Add in the milk. Drizzle over scones while they are fresh out of the oven. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
