 Do you ever want to just do something different Cinnamon Scones

Do you ever want to just do something different? I feel like that ALL the time! I decided to delve into the world of scones. I’ll never look back now! They are seriously SO delicious and so fast and easy in the morning. They can even be a great after-school snack or we’ve even had them for dessert. They’re so versatile.
 And for some reason, when I make them I feel a little more sophisticated…maybe a little British! Ha! Actually, recently my husband has been drinking lemon herbal tea with local honey for his allergies. Last time I made these, he curled up on the couch with his tea and scone and thoroughly enjoyed it, while I sat by and giggled to tears.
The possibilities of different combinations for scones is endless. My next scone adventure…White Chocolate Raspberry. Can’t wait!

For the scones: 1 1/2 cups flour + more for cutting board
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into 1/2″ cubes
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (sour cream can be substituted)
1 egg
1/2 cup cinnamon chips

For the glaze: 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons milk

Preheat the panggangan to 350F. Cover a cookie sheet with nonstick spray, parchment paper or nonstick pad.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tarter, salt and cinnamon).

Cut in butter, using a pastry cutter or fork until the butter is the size of peas.
In a separate bowl, whisk together egg and yogurt. Add to the dry mixture and mix until just combined.

Turn dough out onto floured cutting board. Knead a few times to bring the dough together, and shape into a ball. Gently press down to make the dough into a disc, approximately 8-9″ in diameter. Use a sharp knife to cut (like a pizza) into eight triangles.

Transfer scones to the prepared baking sheet, making sure to space about 2″ apart (they will increase in size as they bake). Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the panggangan and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

While the scones are cooling, make the glaze by whisking all ingredients together until smooth. Drizzle over completely-cooled scones just before serving and allow the glaze to dry slightly before serving.

Makes eight scones, or four large scones if you prefer. Store the un-glazed scones in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. Keep the glaze refrigerated. Or, store the prepared scones in an airtight container in the freezer for up to three months.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
