Glazed Cinnamon Scones Recipe

These Cinnamon Glazed Scones will be the BEST you've ever tasted -- flaky, soft and beautifully delicious!

When Angela from The Coupon Project emailed me the link to her Cinnamon Scone Recipe, I immediately knew I wanted to try it! And I knew it would be the perfect addition to our Christmas Brunch.

While Kaitlynn and Silas were taking their afternoon naps, Kathrynne and I had fun whipping these up. She’s getting old enough to really be a help in the kitchen and it’s fun to have her work alongside me — and end up actually getting more done, than just having extra messes to clean up! 🙂

After mixing up the scone ingredients (see below), roll these out to about half an inch thick and eight inches in circumference. There’s no need to do it perfect; I believe the beauty of homemade scones is that each one has a little bit of personality!

Put onto a greased baking sheet. Or, get smarter than me and roll it out on the greased baking sheet so you don’t have to mess with the transfer! Slice like a pizza into eight pieces (or more, if you prefer smaller scones).

Brush with beaten egg whites, sprinkle with cinnamon and turbinado and bake.

Once baked, drizzle with the glaze and serve. These are one of the best scones I’ve ever tasted — flaky, soft and beautifully delicious!

    Just made these this morning. Delicious! Best scones I’ve had. I used a hand mixers and used butter right out of the fridge and it turned out perfect. Also I added cinnamon to the glaze which was nice,and I also piped the icing out of a plastic baggy and it made it much less messy. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

  • Lisa says:

    First of all, I recently found your blog and just love it!

    Then, I saw this recipe and thought we would give it a try. Delicious! And 5 out of 5 family members want me to make it again!

  • A.S. says:

    I read this recipe a few days ago and thought that it would be perfect for a family brunch that we held this morning. My husband ended up making them, as I was preparing other items, and they came out perfectly. My husband is not a recipe deviator, so he followed every step to the letter. I wish that we had made two batches, as the first was one gone almost immediately. Because I love walnuts/pecans on everything, I sprinked some on my portion. Thanks for a fantastic recipe – it’s a keeper.

  • amanda says:

    Is it just regular flour that’s used….not self rising????????

  • Amy says:

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I made these today and they were awesome! I replaced the vanilla extract with almond

  • Brooke says:

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I just made them and they’re fantastic! Even my husband likes them (which is saying a lot, lol)!!! Thanks again!

  • Leslie says:

    We tried this one last weekend – Delicious!! Thanks for the recipe!

  • wendy says:

    I saw that someone had mentioned the self rising.
    Using the baking powder and baking soda does the job of rising the scones and I have used very cold butter, but when mixing, put the ingredients together right away, the cold butter gives it that light flaky texture.

  • Jann says:

    Just made a double batch…fabulous.. So light and buttery, has that sweet salty taste I love!

  • Kristy says:

    Can these be made the night before? If so, what is the best way to store them?

    • Barry says:

      I doubt they would hold up overnight. My experience with a variety of scones is that they dry out by the next morning but guess you could give it a try.

  • Robin says:

    This recipe is wonderful! I don’t bake scones very often, but I will definitely make these again. The cinnamon and honey combination are delicious! Thanks so much!

  • Lisa says:

    Converted this to a gluten free version this morning for Valentine’s Day and it turned out beautifully! I used a mixture of Pamela’s GF bread mix and Kratzen AP gluten free flour blend (1 cup each). I also added vanilla to the batter and cinnamon chips to the flour and put more cinnamon and sugar on the top instead of the glaze – family preference, we love cinnamon! The GF version did take a little longer to bake in my oven – more like 17 min. But they were perfect! Thank you for providing such a great recipe!

  • Martha says:

    Is it possible to substitute gluten free flour for the unbleached or whole wheat flour?

  • Jann says:

    I absolutely love these… So light and buttery… This is my go to scone recipe!!!! ?

  • Donna says:

    Good day, looks amazing. When I want smaller scones, I just make my dough into 2 balls and flatten as usual. It makes scones that a child can eat easily.

  • Funnyface says:

    I just made these and they turned out superb. Just the right texture and perfect sweetness. I will be making again. My daughter’s face said it all when she took a bite. Great recipe

  • Gwen says:

    I made these scones this morning and they were amazing! I substituted leftover evaporated milk for buttermilk and added lots of cinnamon to the scones and glaze and they turned out very yummy. 🙂

  • nette says:

    I made these and am making them again!! Best scones I ever made! I used half butter and half coconut oil(not melted) and they were just delish!! Thank you for sharing with us!!

  • Eddie says:

    Good recipe just made it yummy

  • Vicki says:

    My little one loves Buckey’s scones..we always buy in quantity when we drive by. His only issue is the fruit..he picks it out! Found this recipe..thought I would give it a try. I have made it twice now..he loves them!!!!
    Thank you!

  • Deanna says:

    Made these this afternoon between a chocolate cake and a batch of cookies. They turned out perfect, my 10 yr old said it was the best thing I have made. I used a 10 inch spring form pan bottom as my cookie sheet. Perfect ! Thank you for sharing.

  • Rachel Hopple says:

    These were absolutely awesome….making them for the 2nd time, adding choc. chips. I didn’t put the glaze on at the end, and they were sweet enough…and delicious; perfect texture and taste! Thank you! This will be my new go-to scone recipe!

  • heather says:

    delicious! and so glad they give the sour milk option when baking (since i hardly ever buy buttermilk!). We bake almost all of our own goodies due to nut allergies and this is a keeper! i may add raisins or cranberries and orange juice to try some other varieties! thanks!!

  • Lisa Broom says:

    I wanted to like these – tasted great like everyone else said – soft and buttery. But they left an awful after taste of baking powder! I only used the 2 teaspoons so not sure why this happened. I don’t know if I should give it another try and see what happens!

    • Crissy says:

      @Lisa, I make a lot of scones and always use that amount of baking powder, you can’t taste it. Did you perhaps use baking soda instead? These turned out absolutely amazing for me with sugar instead of honey.

  • Cathy says:

    These did come our perfect, but i like my scones a little bit sweeter. Im a sugar freak. Lol

  • Linda says:

    Can the dough be made the day before & rolled & cut, then refrigerated till the next morning?

  • Trudy says:

    Fabulous and easy! I’m not a scone fan but that’s evidently because I’ve never had them hot and fresh. OMG, do yourself a favor and make these! Recipe must be very forgiving because, after not incorporating the butter til the very end (I forgot), they turned out beautiful and delicious.
