Cinnamon Chip Scones

Do you like the flavor of cinnamon? Do you like scones? Want to make fantastic tasting Cinnamon Chip Scones???  Well, look no further, because this is the recipe you want!Cinnamon Chip Scones / The Grateful Girl Cooks!

Today’s recipe is for this great, filled with cinnamon flavor, moist scone. They are soooo yummy!I recently bought a bag of cinnamon chips at the grocery store. I’d never bought this kind of baking chip before, but had recently seen a recipe that used cinnamon chips, featured on Taste of Home, thought they sounded delicious, so decided to give it a try.

I love making scones and could tell just from the amazing aroma coming out of my oven as they were baking that I would LOVE them. Yep. Delicious! My husband said after tasting one that before he tried one he wasn’t sure he was going to like them, but after tasting one (or two ☺) decided they are awesome! Perfect with a morning cup of coffee! The recipe makes 16 medium sized scones, so I even put half of them in my freezer for another time. How perfect is that???

I sure hope you will give these a try. WAY LESS EXPENSIVE than paying for the same quantity at your local coffeehouse…really! And they are absolutely EASY AND DELICIOUS!

Here’s how you make these:

  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk

For the Glaze: (optional, but totally think it makes the scones taste even better)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon

  3. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients using a pastry blender until mixture is reduced to coarse crumbs.

  5. Fold in cinnamon chips until dispersed throughout the dough.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead dough gently 10-12 times (until dough is not sticky).
  7. Divide dough in half; form each half into a 7 inch circle. Brush each half with melted butter and sprinkle with remaining 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar.
  8. Cut each circle into 8 wedges (for medium sized), or 6 wedges (for larger). Separate the wedges and place them onto an ungreased baking sheet.
