Cinnamon Chip Scones

I made Cinnamon Chip Scones!
I don't know about where you live, but the time around Thanksgiving cinnamon chips are really a scarce commodity (being there's a tea room less than a mile from where I live, all the grocery stores near me get cleaned out!) But before Thanksgiving I was shopping at a grocery store across town and was able to snag 3 bags of chips!!! WooHoo.  Today I finally made some scones. 

Here's the recipe...just in case you get a hankerin' !  LOL

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream (Don't substitute anything else for this, it won't work!)
cinnamon chips (I threw the whole bag in!!! - I don't think that ya should but I love cinnamon!)
3 TBSP melted butter (to brush on tops of scones.
Additional sugar and cinnamon for sprinkling on top

Combine flour, salt, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon chips in a medium mixing bowl.  Pour in heavy cream.
Stir ingredients until just combined.  Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead lightly  7-8 times - do not overwork the dough. 
Shape into a round, about 1 inch thick and cut into 8 wedges.
Place on a foil covered baking sheet (I used parchment paper!) so you don't have to spray with cooking spray.
Brush the tops of the scones with melted butter and sprinkle tops with sugar and cinnamon
Bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes until just lightly golden brown (watch the bottoms!)  NOTE:  if you happen to want to put the whole bag of chips in...you might need to adjust the cooking time to a little longer.

You can serve with whipped cream, but as you can see, I didn't wait!  LOL

  18. Oh, these look great! I know I have whipping cream in the fridge and I *think* I have some cinnamon chips, too. May make these tomorrow!

  19. I can never find cinnamon chips-but I've had great luck making my own, adapting from http://www.mind-over-batter.com/whats-baking/diy-cinnamon-chips/
    I use just a touch less cinnamon and less karo and shortening (so they firm up a bit more) and soak up the oil that bakes out by swiping a paper towel over and around the blob when it comes out of the oven. They run a bit when you bake whatever you mix them into, but they're so exceptionally perfect flavor-wise, It's not a hardship eating the melty bits off the pan.


I love your sweet comments and read them all. Please let me know you were here!
