    Cinnamon Walnut Scones

    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
    4 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
    2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 cup cold butter or margarine
    2 eggs
    1/3 cup whipping cream
    1/4 cup buttermilk

    In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients, cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine eggs and cream. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

    Turn onto a floured surface. Gently pat into a 7-inch circle, 3/4 inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges. Separate wedges, then place on a greased baking sheet. Brush with buttermilk. Let rest 15 minutes.

    Bake at 450 degrees F for 14 to 16 minutes or until golden brown.
