While you can make fried scones from refrigerated or frozen yeast roll dough, making them from scratch doesn't require that much more effort. Sprinkle them with powdered sugar or better yet, drizzle them with a cinnamony browned honey butter.

Cinnamon-Sugar Coffee Cake
Cinnamon-Sugar Coffee Cake

The cinnamon and sugar flavors in this recipe are fairly standard coffee cake territory but the addition of candied ginger in the cake and a pinch of allspice in the glaze give this cake a bit of pizzazz and an ever so slight spiciness that will have you shaving off slice after slice, even after breakfast is over.

Cinnamon Rolls

Making cinnamon rolls at home may seem like a hassle, but we promise, the smell of cinnamon and sweet yeasty bread baking is almost as good as eating the rolls themselves. (Almost.) These are great fresh from the oven, when they're just a little bit warm. Leftovers are great for French toast or bread pudding. If you have leftovers.

Cinnamon Knots

These rolls are sweet, and the luxurious flavor of honey is evident but not overwhelming. They are best when warm, and they were still good when fresh but fully cooled. Surprisingly, they are good a day or two later, microwaved for thirty seconds and eaten warm.
