Cinnamon Scones


2 cups CVM Spelt Flour (whole or bolted)

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter

1 egg, separated

3 tablespoons honey

1/3 cup buttermilk*

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

* If you don’t have this on hand, use 1/3 cup milk and a squeeze of lemon juice for acid.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in the butter and mix until crumbly.

In another bowl, mix the egg yolk (save the white for later) with honey and buttermilk until blended. Then, add to the dry mixture. Stir until just combined.

Using floured hands, form the dough into a ball on a floured surface.

Roll or pat it out until it’s roughly a half an inch thick and 8 inches in diameter. Cut pizza style into equally sized pieces.

Put onto a greased baking pan. Then, whisk the egg white until frothy and coat the tops of the scones. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle on top.

Bake for about 10-12 minutes.

If desired, you may top with glaze. To make the glaze, mix a bunch of powdered sugar with a touch of milk until nice and thick. Add cinnamon or sprinkle on top of glaze.
