Cinnamon Bun Scones for the Royal Wedding Watch

 I fixed a tray for my bedroom, for watching the wedding of Harry and Meghan.  I'm using my pretty rose teapot and matching teacup that some dear friends gave me.  I have a tin of English breakfast tea for brewing, and a sausage and asparagus frittata, fresh berried with whipped cream and a yummy scone.

 I enjoyed the wedding while viewing from my comfy bed!

 The first kiss and hooray for love!

 Cissy came over on Friday and she mixed up the Cinnamon Bun Scones.  Here she is cutting the butter into the flour mixture.  She tried my pastry blender first, and then I showed her how to cut by using two knives.  She preferred this method.  The previous weekend, most of my family went to Arkansas, where we stay with friends on their ranch.  When Cissy came the days before we went, she asked what we were making.  I told her that we had three desserts to bring for our trip, but I didn't think we could make them all in an hour.  She so wisely said, "Yes we can.  We are professionals!"  Do you know what??  We completed all three in an hour!!

Cinnamon Bun Scones

These yummy scones are reminiscent of cinnamon buns, but without all the wait!


2 cups flour
1 cup oats (quick or old-fashioned)
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar (divided use)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter, chilled and cut into 8 pieces
1/4 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup toasted pecans (see note)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
 Glaze (recipe follows)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; mix well. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In small bowl, combine milk, egg, and vanilla; blend well.  Add to dry ingredients all at once, and stir with fork or rubber spatula just until dry ingredients are moistened.
In second small bowl, combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar with pecan and cinnamon; mix well.  Sprinkle evenly over dough in bowl,  gently stir batter to swirl in cinnamon mixture. (Do not blend completely.) Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls 2  inches apart on cookie sheet.
Bake 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove to wire rack; cool 5 minutes.  Drizzle glaze over tops of warm scones and serve. 
GLAZE:  In small blowl, combine 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar and 3-4 teaspoons orange juice or milk.
NOTE: To toast pecans, preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spread pecans in single layer in baking pan and bake until lightly browned and fragrant, about 6-8 minutes.

My grandson, Caiden, celebrated his 13th birthday in Arkansas!  He had fun 4-wheeling, fishing, playing paint ball,  and swimming in the river!

My granddaughter, Avery, turned 11 this past week, and I was able to take her to dinner on the day before her birthday.  It's always so nice being with this sweet girl!

Here's a picture of our family members that went to Arkansas. 

I am sharing this with these lovely parties:

I was up at 5 am to watch the Royal Wedding. I wish I would have had a beautiful breakfast tray and beautiful pot of English tea to enjoy with it. ♥

  14. What a wonderful way to view the royal wedding. There were quite a number of royal wedding viewing tea parties at my local tearooms, but I was away visiting my brother in Alberta. So I also enjoyed the royal wedding from a comfy couch. I managed to get up at 4 am MDT, but it was so early that I didn't have an appetite for breakfast!

  15. have a beautiful family, sweet friend. And, the food looks so yummy and cozy from your pretty room. God bless you!

  16. Sweet photos of your sweeties to go along with some sweet treats! PERFECTION!
    I heard there is a Cinnamon Bun coffee that is delicious with Cinnamon Bun creamer. I don't drink coffee at all, but I have tried the Cinnamon Bun creamer in my tea! It was pretty good. Of course, it would have been better served in such a beautiful teapot/teacup set!! Lovely!!1

  17. Kitty I had to come over and see your teacup reveal and catch up. The frittata looks SO good. You had a right royal knees up!

  18. Mmmm...your scones sound ever so good, my friend, and just the perfect thing to enjoy in bed while watching the wedding.

Might as well get good and comfortable for the show...YUM..Those cinnamon scones are on my agenda when I return home... Thanks for the recipes and sharing your lovely pictures....Hugs

  22. Oh, Kitty! I don't know what to comment on first.

    Guess it is the Royal Wedding - and how you watched it in true Kitty fashion! Your tea for one = excellent!

    Cissy is becoming one of my favorite little bakers. I love her sweet and helpful face. What memories she will have of this special time together with her sweet Grandma.

    And your family - wow - how special to all get together! By everyone's smile, looks like a great time was had by all. YAY!

    Thank you for sharing your scone recipe - I haven't made scones in a long while - and I believe you just inspired me.

    I made FOUR batches of banana bread mini loaves within the last 2 days. Tonights' batch I put in too much oil so the first whole baked batch I had to pitch. GRRRRR. Then knowing that I added some more flour to off-set my mistake - and then overbaked THOSE. GRRRRR. So I sorta wasted a few hours and a double batch of bread tonight. Not a happy gal about that, as I was making them for my sister who is taking two SUV loads of cheerleaders up to her lake house so the girls can go to Cedar Point Amusement Park on friday morning. Oh well, I tried. :-(

    Big hugs. ♥

  23. "We are professionals" -- love that Cissy! Your scones sound delicious - must put them on my to-do list. What a lovely way to watch the wedding!

  24. Oh my...I've been slow getting around this week. I saw the post on facebook and saw these yummy looking scones and that cutie grandson of yours. How fun to be able to enjoy this lovely breakfast in bed...and watching that lovely wedding at the same time! Wasn't it just beautiful?

  25. What a beautiful way to watch the wedding, Kitty! Lovely rose tea-set and yummy treats. The wedding was like a fairy-tale....such a happy event. I love Cissy's 'can-do' attitude! Who knows, maybe she will have her own bake-shop someday and she has her wonderful Grandmother for the inspiration. Lovely family birthday photos - lucky you for getting to hold the babies xx The scones sound so yummy! Hugs xo Karen

  26. Kitty, you have such a darling family! I'm so happy that you get to spend so much time with them. I love cinnamon buns and these scones sound so yummy! I recorded the royal wedding, and have only watched part of it. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  27. Yes, you two ARE professionals! How cute. I'm glad you had a good family time, that sounds like a boy's dream to do all that on his birthday. I didn't get up to see the wedding but was glued to the highlights later that morning. You fixed yourself a nice breakfast. I remember your saying you often breakfast in bed. I think that is a lovely tradition. xo Deborah

  28. Breakfast in bed sounds lovely Kitty. As usual your tray is perfect. A nice cup of tea and a wonderful treat. The wedding was quite delightful. Your family is beautiful. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. xo

  29. Looks like a great trip to Arkansas with family. I loved the Royal Wedding and can sure see that your Cinnamon Bun Scones would have been a delicious addition. Hope you are having a great weekend and thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday!

  31. Hi Kitty!
    Looks like you all had a wonderful time at the river!!! I haven't tubed down the river in YEARS... Might have to do that with what looks to be a HOT summer here in Texas this year, Lol! ;) I love that your granddaughter said "No, we can do it!" when faced with making three desserts. I always wonder how chefs on t.v. get through making everything in their allotted time.

    Stopping by today from Tuesday Cuppa Tea,
    Have a great week!
    Barb :)

  32. Love these Kitty! Perfect tea party for the wedding. Yumm! Bet they were a big hit at your place! Tell Cissy well done!
