How about a freshly baked cinnamon scones with a cup of hot lemon green tea? Wow sounds like a vacation isn’t it? Well that was it today when I baked these beauties. The house was filled with aroma of cinnamon and my daughter was on her toes to grab those scones .But then she had to wait for me to click some pictures. She gave a disappointed look on her face and there you go , gave her one scone with silky smooth cinnamon butter and sugar dripping icing. Viola! She just jumped and started hogging. That made me feel grab and eat one myself but then I had to control to get some pictures .
Making them was fun and so is clicking ! Without much wait here is the recipe.
