I love how easy these cinnamon twist scones are to make. They are as easy to mix up as biscuits, but turn out looking so fancy. Great for breakfast or brunch when company is coming over. They are also a frugal breakfast recipe costing only $.10 each. My family gobbles these up every time I made them.

  • 2 cups of Flour
  • 1/2 cup of Sugar
  • 3 t Baking Powder
  • 1/2 t Salt
  • 1/2 cup Margarine or Butter if you don't have to eat dairy free
  • 1 Egg
  • Enough milk mixed with the egg to make 3/4 cup
  • 1 T Margarine or Butter for spreading on the dough
  • Filling
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 t Cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cut in the margarine or butter until the chunks are small pea sized.
  • Add in most of the milk and egg mixture. You want all the flour moistened but you don't want the dough too sticky. If you have any leftover milk/egg mixture you can add more milk to make another batch or you can add a few more eggs and make scrambled eggs.
  • Knead the dough about 10 turns. Then roll out into a rectangle.
  • Spread the dough with the butter and then sprinkle with the cinnamon and brown sugar.
  • Fold the bottom 1/3 of the dough up. Then fold the upper 1/3 of the dough down. You want the layers to overlap. Press lightly to seal.
  • Cut the dough into strips.
  • When placing them on a greased cookie sheet twist twice.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
  • Optional, You can drizzle with powdered sugar and milk glaze or just eat them plain.
