Do you like the flavor of cinnamon? Do you like to eat scones? Want to make fantastic tasting Cinnamon Chip Scones for breakfast or to snack on any other time???  Well, look no further, because this is the most delicious scone recipe you will ever want!

I’m so happy to share this recipe for amazing tasting cinnamon chip scones. They are soooo yummy! I recently bought a bag of cinnamon chips at the grocery store. Sometimes the chips are seasonal (not in stores), but they can be ordered online. I’d never bought this kind of baking chip before, but remembered seeing a scone recipe that used cinnamon chips, featured on Taste of Home, thought they sounded delicious, so decided to give it a try.

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! I sure hope you will give these cinnamon chip scones a try. WAY LESS EXPENSIVE than paying for the same quantity at your local coffeehouse. They are absolutely EASY AND DELICIOUS!

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  3. Stir buttermilk in to the mixture. Stir only until moistened. Fold in cinnamon chips until dispersed throughout the dough.

  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead dough gently 10-12 times (until dough is not sticky). 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.

  5. 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. Bake at 425 degrees for 13-15 minutes (or until light golden brown). Remove to a wire rack to cool.

  6. Mix glaze ingredients together in small bowl. Using a pastry brush, "paint" the glaze over the tops of the scones. Let glaze harden, then serve at room temp, for best taste! Enjoy!
