Cinnamon Sugar Scones (Starbucks Copycat)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 egg beater (1/4 cup), divided
  • 3 tablespoons sugar free honey
  • 1/3 cup skim milk with a couple drops of lemon juice in it (makes buttermilk)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar + 2-3 TBSP water
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Then mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in the butter and mix until crumbly.
  2. In another bowl, mix 2 TBSP egg beaters with honey and "buttermilk" until blended. Then, add to the dry mixture. Stir until just combined.
  3. Place the dough on a sprayed cookie sheet and shape into a pizza shaped mound about 8 inches in diameter.
  4. Brush with 1 TBSP egg beaters. Mix cinnamon and sugar together and then sprinkle over egg mixture.
  5. Bake 10-11 minutes
  6. Meanwhile, mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 2-3 tablespoons water (until it's a glaze-like consistency. )
  7. Cut scones into 6 wedges and allow to cool before glazing, or eat fresh out of the oven and glaze one at at time. (If you glaze immediately, the scones will absorb the glaze.
  8. After glazing, place in the refrigerator until the glaze solidifies, then you can store them at room temperature after that.
