These are exceptional. They are definitely more of a cinnamon roll than a scone. ;) I only subbed half and half for the buttermilk because I forgot to buy it. Otherwise, I did the recipe pretty exact. I added a vanilla butter glaze and pretty much though they were the best things ever made. Amazing recipe!
Positively perfect in every way! I love the recipe as written, but put a light glaze on half of them for guests who prefer them a little sweeter. I get the cinnamon chips from Amazon.
I've tried several recipes searching for the right cinnamon chip scone. Finally my search is over.
These were good - nice and moist but lacking cinnamon flavor. Next time I will add a bit of ground cinnamon or maybe cinnamon /sugar mixture on top. But I will definitely be trying them again!
This recipe is awesome! It's a Christmas morning tradition.
