Snickerdoodle Scones: Ready in 20 Minutes!

Need a quick, easy breakfast treat for the kids? Try these homemade Snickerdoodle Scones – they’re amazingly delicious and ready in 20 minutes or less!

A few days ago, my youngest daughter was complaining about not having anything “good” for breakfast. Mind you, we had cereal, eggs, oatmeal, pancake mix, frozen fruit for smoothies and bread for toast.

But, there was nothing good to eat!

So, instead of being a mean mommy and forcing her to eat something we already had, I decided to play nice mommy and make her a special breakfast treat.

She loves scones, so I thought they’d be a great option. But, I wanted to make something “different” to satisfy her need for something other than the usual breakfast foods.

Since she really enjoys having homemade cinnamon toast, I combined the two ideas to come up with these delicious Snickerdoodle Scones.

We’ve made a ton of different kinds of scones over the years and Maple Cinnamon Chip and Golden Raisin Scones are our favorite. But, these Snickerdoodle Scones come in at a really close second…they might even win out!

They are so good and they’re perfect for breakfast, snack-time or even dessert with vanilla ice cream. Plus, they are ready in about 20 minutes to prepare…you can’t beat that for homemade baked goods!

Be sure to give this one a try, you’re family will thank you.

Here’s the recipe –
