Delicious, these Glazed Cinnamon Pinwheel Scones are so lovely and simple to make, a firm favourite with followers of my website.
I have a confession to make, I am terrible at making scones. It just seems like I’m not cut out to be a great scone maker! I have a few recipes to try so must attempt those as they claim they are no fail which seems like my sort of scone recipe.
Not sure what it is about them, but if little rocks is what you are after with your afternoon cuppa then I can help out!
However I do love scones, especially with jam and cream, but also cheese scones & cinnamon pinwheels, but in the past in order to make them I have used the cheats version in a bag from the supermarket!
But I figured that now was the time to try out this recipe I had been given, they claimed it had never failed yet so it sounded like my sort of recipe, and since I had only half an hour to get them made they needed to be not only no fail but quick, easy and delicious!
So I am delighted to let you know that not only were they quick but they tasted great! In typical fashion for me I altered them a little, I decided once they were cooked that a glaze would be a nice addition and I think it added the right amount of moisture to make them even more delicious.
You can of course leave the glaze out, but it literally took 1 minute to make!
The ingredients are simple all you need is
The method is broken down into three parts, prepare the scone dough, roll out and prepare the filling then once baked the glaze.
To create the dough you need to rub the butter into the flour mixture, this is simple but takes a little time.
Once the butter is completely incorporated into the flour mixture you can then add milk and bring together lightly to form a dough. This is then rolled out to some sort of rectangular shape.
There are a couple of different ways to make the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon centre, I like to melt mine all together but I know some people spread the melted butter on then sprinkle over the brown sugar mix, either is fine, but this way its quick and easy and slightly less messy.
Then bake the pinwheels until they are lightly golden brown and sound hollow when tapped. Then prepare the simple vanilla glaze if using. You can be heavy handed or light with this one depending on what you prefer.
These are truly lovely to make, I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have.
