The snow is falling again today and it doesn’t look like it will be clearing up anytime soon. We don’t know about you, but there is just something so comforting to us about a home baked good on a cold winter day. So today, we wanted to share this delicious Cinnamon Scone recipe that was originally featured on eighteen25girls blog in hopes to spread some warmth with you all.

Scone Ingredients:
2 cups flour
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)
1/4 cup Cinnamon Chips – optional

Crumb Topping (can be adjusted to your liking):
1-2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Glaze Ingredients (can be adjusted to your liking):
1 cup 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 sugar 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.
