Vanilla cinnamon scones with maple glaze + Hiland.

This post is sponsored by Hiland Dairy but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I looooooove this time of year! I love the joy in my children...the decor...the music...the sweets...the gatherings...the parties...oh and did I mention the baked goods?

When it comes to your holiday meals Hiland Dairy has all your needs! Hiland Dairy has delivered farm fresh products across the midwest since 1938. They also believe in  committing to sustainability to minimize waste and environmental impact.

Along with all the things I adore during this season...I also enjoys traditions...traditions that have been passed down from family members...and new traditions that are created. 

Traditions like classic movie watching...waiting for our elf to arrive...grandma's sugar cookies...PJ's on Christmas eve...candle light services...morning breakfast...and more. 

Morning breakfasts are my favorites.

Scones are one of my favorites too.

Have you ever made your scones before? 

You'll need:

2 3/4 cups of flour
1/3 cup of sugar
3/4 teas. of salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup cold butter
2 large eggs
2 teas. vanilla
2/3 cup of Hiland half +half

optional-  1 tablespoon of cinnamon...fresh vanilla bean...

 STEP ONE: mix dry ingredients in bowl.

STEP TWO: cut in cold butter.
...until it resembles a crumble mixture...

STEP THREE: whisk wet ingredients.

STEP FOUR: mix dry and wet ingredients together.

STEP FIVE: lightly flour dough.

STEP SIX: shape dough into circle and cut into triangles.

STEP SEVEN: bake for 10 minutes.

NOTE: you can freeze these for 30 minutes before baking...but bake for 20 minutes instead of 10.

* parchment paper helps when baking these...if you don't have a pizza stone.

I topped these with maple cinnamon glaze...and it was great! 

Be sure to garb all you Hiland needs at your local grocer!
