Easy Cinnamon Scones Recipe

How to Make Cinnamon Scones


2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2 T. brown sugar
4 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ground cloves
1/3 c. butter, cut into pieces
2 eggs
3/4 c. whipping cream
1/2 c. chopped dates
1/4 c. chopped nuts, walnuts or pecans are best


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and cloves. 
  • Cut in butter, using a fork or pastry blender, until mixture resembles small peas.
  • In a small bowl, combine eggs and whipping cream. 
  • Add egg mixture to the dry ingredients. 
  • Mix with a fork until mixture is just blended.
  • Add dates and nuts. 
  • Work the dough with your hands just until the fruit is evenly distributed and the dough is nearly smooth. Overworking the dough will cause the scones to be tough.
  • Pat the dough into an 8 inch pie pan until it fills the pan.  
  • Cut into 8-12 wedges.
  • Place the wedges on an ungreased baking sheet, about 1 inch apart.  
  • Bake for 13-15 min. at 400 degrees F.
