I was fortunate to win a giveaway from Debbie at A Feast for the Eyes. One special part of this gift was a package of King Arthur Cinnamon Chips. I have been wanting to find a special recipe for this and I think I have.
I found the post here on CC Recipe blog. They smelled so wonderful while they were baking. I really do like those cinnamon chips. Tiny little bursts of great tasting cinnamon. As most scone recipes, this came together quickly.
Cinnamon Chip Scones
2 1/3 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup cinnamon chips
1 cup buttermilk
Heavy cream for brushing top and cinnamon/sugar mixture for sprinkling on top
Mix dry ingredients and cut butter into it. Add the cinnamon chips. Add buttermilk all at once, folding to incorporate. Knead dough gently to just hold together. Form into a rectangle approximately 3 1/2 inches by 15 inches long. Cut dough into 14-15 triangles. (I made them a little bigger and got 12).
Place on parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet. Brush with cream and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar. Bake 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees.
