Cinnamon Chip Scones

I love cinnamon.  And, any recipe that starts with the word “cinnamon” grabs my attention.  I’ve been looking for a good scone recipe.  One that wasn’t too dry or too complicated to make.  When I came across this recipe, it seemed just right. 

Is it a Keeper?

Holy cow was this recipe easy.  I was a little surprised by how wet the dough was.  When I’ve made scones in the past, I was able to form the dough into a disk and then cut it into the tradition triangle pieces.  That was not happening with this “dough”.

I ended up using my large Pampered Chef scooper to portion the dough.  One scoop made the perfect size.  I also topped my scones with some crystalized sugar.

The recipe calls for cinnamon chips.  The ones I used were made by Hershey’s.  I found them in the baking aisle at my grocery store — right next to the chocolate chips.

While they were baking my house smelled wonderful!  So cinnamon-y!

So, as soon as these puppies came out of the oven (20 minutes exactly for me!), I dove right in.  They were perfect!  A nice crust on the outside and warm and soft on the inside.  It was everything I wanted in a scone.  Plus, they were super cinnamon-y!  Bliss!  I highly recommend this recipe!

  1. I just made some cinnamon chip scones myself! I’m so used to rock-hard chewy, tough, dry, BLAND scones, but finally, these changed my life!! Finally, a scone that’s buttery, tender, soft, and delicate. Mmm. Literally the best thing that I’ve made.

    I used a slightly different recipe no egg – so it’s more like a traditional scone recipe. Super moist, light and fluffy, and definitely tender and buttery! I’ll have to try yours and compare!

  2. i love cinnamon too- will definitely try this one. I just printed the recipe, thanks for the share.
