cinnamon delights

These are super and you may think we have made a mistake with 80g melted butter but you do need it for these treats –served warm they are as good as a warm donut without all the extra work.

 

Ingredients

Makes 16 puffs Takes 30 minutes

2 cups flour

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

125g very cold butter

¾ cup milk

Cinnamon coating:

80g melted butter

½ cup sugar

2 tsp cinnamon
 

Directions

1. Heat oven to 190degC fan bake.

2. Set out a baking tray, do not grease.

3. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.  Grate the cold butter into the mix and blend with a knife or loosen with your hands till the mix is crumbly.

4. Stir in milk with a fork just until the mix holds together and forms a ball.

5. Turn dough onto a lightly floured bench and just knead very lightly just about 7 fold, press, turn movements.

6. After kneading – divide dough into 16 parts and roll each part into a smooth ball.

7. Place balls on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

8. Place melted butter in a bowl and the sugar and cinnamon combined in another bowl.  While the scones are warm, remove from the tray and roll each in melted butter; then in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Serve straight away.
