Sunday Morning..

A relaxing Sunday breakfast..homemade Cinnamon Chip Scone with a Cinnamon Latte

Cinnamon Chip Scones
2 cups flour
3 tbsp white sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
6 tbsp chilled butter, cut into small cubes
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup half and half
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp white sugar
1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup milk
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 400*F. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter. In a smaller bowl, combine beaten egg and half and half. Add to dry mixer and stir until moistened. Add cinnamon chips and stir until distributed. Turn the dough onto a clean surface  and knead until dough is smooth enough to mold into a 12 in circle (dough will be sort of crumbly). Cut circle 4 times making 6 large scones (triangles) or if you would like smaller scones cut as you desire. Place the scones 1 inch apart on a baking sheet (ungreased) and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
To make icing add milk to powdered sugar and wisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm scones and serve.
