Oatmeal scones, baked 1 Jan 2010
I am a sucker for many things–beautiful women, ice cream, dogs, lake swimming, chocolate, rhythm, and baked goods with cinnamon come to mind without breaking a sweat. “Baked goods with cinnamon” is a proxy for “baked goods with cinnamon and sugar,” because cinnamon by itself would not make me walk across a room. Mix cinnamon with sugar in yeast dough and I’ll follow you anywhere. This morning I decided to do something with a carton of buttermilk with an April 17 sell-by date that was still good. A recipe for easy cinnamon buns was the answer. An hour later they were baked, glazed, cooled, and ready to eat.
