Cinnamon Chip Scones

Can you believe I’ve never made scones before? I just never think to make them… When I started thinking about what to do with all the cinnamon chips I have in my cabinet, I got a couple recommendations to make cinnamon scones. I decided to give them a shot.

I found a recipe that called for mini chocolate chips and just subbed in the cinnamon chips. I cut my scones into 16 squares and popped them in the freezer. Slowly we worked our way through them and I honestly preferred them chilled, straight out of the freezer.

Hubby commented that these tasted like pie crust with cinnamon chips in it. No matter how you describe them, we both agreed they are worth making again. Hubby has requested that happens sooner rather than later.

Cinnamon Chip Scones

Yield: 16


For the Scones
2 cups (10 oz) flour
1/4 cup (1 3/4 oz) sugar
2 1/2 t baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick butter (4 oz) (cold, cut into pieces)
1 cup (8 oz) heavy cream (cold)
3/4 c cinnamon chips

For the Topping
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 T sanding sugar or granulated sugar


Preheat over to 425 degrees

Mix together dry ingredients.

Using a pastry cutter, two knives or your fingers (I use my fingers), cut in the butter. (The book uses a food processor, but I like to make scones by hand...less to clean up!)

Add whipping cream and chocolate chips. Blend together quickly (I use my hands and/or a spatula). Do not overmix.

Shape into a round or square.

Brush with egg wash. Sprinkle with sugar.

Cut into shapes. Place on parchment or Silpat covered baking sheet.

Bake for 14-16 minutes until golden brown and delicious.

    I’m not sure I’ve had chocolate & cinnamon together before but I bet the combination is great! And if it’s in an oatmeal cookie, you can’t really go wrong.

    These look wonderful! I’m sure being stuck in the house with a whole batch of them made you feel a little bit better, right? I love cookies with cinnamon chips in them!

    These look so delicious. Getting sick on important (dessert related!) events is the absolute worst. I think another cookie swap is in your future.
