  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees then line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt until well combined.
  • Use a pastry cutter to cut in butter until mixture is crumbly and butter is pea-sized. In a separate bowl, mix sugar, egg and cream until evenly combined and sugar is dissolved.
  • Add wet mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Form dough into a ball and roll or pat to ½” thickness. The dough will be about 9″–10″ in diameter.
  • Cut the dough like a pizza into eight equal pieces and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops of scones with additional heavy cream and sprinkle with coarse sugar and cinnamon.
  • Bake 10–12 minutes then remove from oven and allow to cool slightly on a rack. Meanwhile, stir together powdered sugar, cinnamon, milk and vanilla until glaze forms. Drizzle over scones after they have cooled slightly then serve while still warm.
