"Excellent recipe--delicious and easy! I added a powdered sugar glaze, but I'm not sure they needed it. Great way to use up an abundance of cinnamon chips I had on hand."

"I have now made this multiple times and used the basic dough with my own variations, and this is an amazing recipe!!!"

"We have made these many times and they are a big hit with my family with a few modifications. The first time I made them, we all agreed they were too rich, so I reduced the butter to 1/2 cup and upped the buttermilk to 1 1/4 cup. As suggested in another review I add cinnamon to the dry mixture.

I have been purchasing my cinnamon chips from Amazon"

"I made these for company last night and they were overwhelming hit. Instead of using the sugar topping, I used a Maple glaze once they cooled. Several of my guests said they were almost a perfect copy of Panera's."

"These sound good. Can I use regular milk instead of buttermilk?"

"Doohood! Just made these for a baking contest at church. They are awesome! I am not what you would call a kitchen virtuoso - or even a kitchen doofus - and yet I made this and they turned out great!"

"I made these last night and they are wonderful. I didn't have any cinnamon chips on hand and used some toffee bits I had left over. I will definitely be making these again, melt in your mouth delicious."

"I was very disappointed in these scones. I followed the recipe, however the dough was too dry so I had to add about another 1/4 cup of buttermilk. Rolled out to a 7' round makes these too thin. I found them to be too dry. Maybe keeping them thicker and baked a tad longer would be better. I also think some sort of icing would help with the flavor."
