Brown Sugar Cinnamon Scones

Friday, June 24, 2011


When I make scones I like to make an assortment. One quick and easy variation is to knead brown sugar and cinnamon into some of the scone dough. The resulting scones are reminiscent of cinnamon rolls and can be enjoyed plain or with jam.

These soft snickerdoodles will literally melt in your mouth. The addition of brown sugar to the cinnamon-sugar mixture in which the cookie dough is rolled adds a wonderful complexity to the flavor.

Blackberry Maple Oatmeal

My recent experiment making Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal for breakfast inspired me to mix up my morning oatmeal routine again. This time, I had some leftover chunky Blackberry Maple Syrup from our Mardi Gras pancake feast. My breakfast was so good that next time I'll be making the blackberry syrup specifically for my morning oatmeal!

Oatmeal is quick, satisfying and full of fiber and other nutrients. Making oatmeal with old-fashioned, whole-grain oats instead of the instant packets really doesn't take much time and allows you to control the amount of added sugar that you consume. We usually eat our oatmeal topped with frozen blueberries, banana slices and brown sugar but I recently had the urge to make apple-cinnamon oatmeal, inspired by one of the traditional instant oatmeal packet flavors.

This sausage can be formed into patties or links for a breakfast sandwich, or even cooked as ground sausage to be used in a breakfast casserole. The brown sugar is optional but I like how sweet plays with spicy.

I like serving mashed sweet potatoes and yams instead of mashed potatoes with most meals. They have more water than regular potatoes so I find that I use less milk and butter to get the creamy texture that we like. And the yams especially add a great pop of color to any plate!
