Make 16 absolutely delicious Cinnamon Chip Scones in under 30 minutes for a fraction of the cost of buying them at a coffeehouse! They freeze well, too!
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!

How To Make Cinnamon Chip Scones
First, add COLD butter to the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until mixture has been reduced to coarse crumbs.
Add the buttermilk and blend until the scone dough is moistened.
Add The Cinnamon Chips
Now you’re ready to add the cinnamon chips. Gently fold in until well distributed throughout the scone dough. TIP: Sometimes cinnamon chips are only available during the holidays, so grab them while you can, and stock up!
This is what the dough for the cinnamon chip scones will look like, once mixed together.
Shape the Dough
Knead the dough gently 10-12 times on a lightly floured surface, until the dough is no longer sticky.
Divide the dough in half, and shape each half into a 7 inch circle. Brush the top of the scones with melted butter and then sprinkle the surface with granulated sugar.
Time To Bake The Cinnamon Chip Scones
Place wedges onto an ungreased baking sheet and toss them into the oven for about 13-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. 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. I was right, because they are so yummy.
Remove scones to wire rack to cool. Prepare the sweet glaze and then lightly “paint” it onto the top of each scone with a pastry brush. Let the glaze harden, then serve.
Serve… And ENJOY These Tasty Cinnamon Chip Scones!
Cinnamon chip scones go perfectly with a morning cup of coffee! The recipe makes 16 medium sized scones, so I put half of them in my freezer for another time. How perfect is that???

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.
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.
