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
