We stopped at a Panera Bread last weekend on our way home from a college visit to pick up a couple of bagels for our traditional Sunday night "breakfast-for-dinner". There I was standing in line - innocently waiting to order my 3 little bagels for dinner when BAM - I got blindsided. The cinnamon scones were staring me in the face! I have a serious weakness for cinnamon scones - but somehow I resisted the urge and managed to get out of the restaurant without the delicious scones in my bag.
The problem is that even after I got home and devoured my super yummy bagel egg sandwich for dinner - I was STILL thinking about those crumbly little cinnamon scones. Fast forward to 24 hours later --- there I was in my kitchen making a batch of cinnamon scones for myself.
I have a serious addiction to these cinnamon chip packed treats. If you haven't tried them yet - you can run by Panera and pick one up OR you can make them for yourself in your own kitchen. They are easy to make and sooooo good.
Freeze butter and grate into fine pieces.
Being careful not to overwork the dough - shape into a ball and then flatten into an 8 inch circle on a silpat lined baking sheet. Cut into 8 equal pieces.
Brush the top of the scone with cream and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake 25 minutes at 400.
Combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over cooled scone.
Just try and not eat one of these warm little scones - I dare you.
Oh my goodness - these scones are insanely good. I think I may even like my homemade version BETTER than the Panera version. I still hold them responsible for giving me cinnamon scone obsession disorder though.
