This is supposed to be the REAL way to make scones, not too sweet but just sweet enough. There are many kinds of scones, but this one has a special appeal, made with so many good things.

How to Make BROWN SUGAR AND OAT SCONES

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon.
  • 2Add 7 Tbsp. of the butter and blend with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the cream and vanilla and stir just until combined. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead 5 or 6 times.
  • 3Transfer the dough to a greased baking sheet and roll or press it into an 8-inch circle. Melt the remaining 1 Tbsp. butter and brush the dough with it.
  • 4Combine the remaining 1/4 tsp. cinnamon with the sugar and sprinkle it over the dough. Cut the dough into 8 equal wedges and separate them just enough that they no longer touch.
  • 5Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
