What is about winter and baking? I had a hankering to make these easy Cinnamon Sugar Sour Cream Scones. They are so easy, you don’t even need to knead them if you don’t want, making them more like a drop biscuit.
I love weekend breakfast recipes, especially if it’s something baked!
Cinnamon Sugar Sour Cream Scones
This simple scone recipe is pretty basic, making it easy to add additional ingredients if wanted.
Adding chocolate or cinnamon chips is easy enough. Or maybe add dried fruit like raisins, dried cranberries, cherries, or apricots. I like a recipe that keeps my options open and this scone recipe does just that!
One of the reasons I avoid making homemade bread is the fear of kneading. Why does that seem so intimidating?
But with these Cinnamon Sugar Sour Cream Scones, the kneading isn’t like bread dough. It’s more like squish it all together so it sticks, then mash it around a little into a round flat circle.
Making these scones was easier when I used my pastry mat, which helped contain the mess. Gosh, I love that thing. It’s a must-have if you like making rolled cookies, biscuits or scones. It keeps your counters clean, with easy cleanup!
These breakfast scones had the perfect fluff to dense ratio!
I usually don’t want a glaze over the top, but if you do, just a simple cream cheese sugar glaze like I used on my Puff Pastry Pumpkin Braid would be delicious.
I’m happy just slicing and slathering with butter. Honey or a bit of jam is good too!
But when they’re fresh out of the oven, I can’t be bothered with too many options.
If you’d rather not make breakfast scones from scratch, I’ve also enjoyed pre-made Fisher Original Fair Scone & Shortbread Mix.
