Reviews for Cinnamon Chip Scones
Sort By :
"These were fabulous! I forgot to buy buttermilk so used Fat Free Hood half n half. Added 2 tsps. cinnamon to batter recommended by a previous review and for topping a cinnamon sugar more heavy on the cinnamon. These scones are better than any I bought in any bakery. I wrapped in tinfoil and on the third day were still moist. I find Panera and Starbucks scones to be really dry. This recipe is a keeper. Next time I'll use the buttermilk to see if there is a difference in the taste. If not will go with my adjusted recipe."
"Easy to make and delicious!"
"okay so i did everything the this told me but i used super cold margarine instead of butter and i didn't have buttermilk so i used my coffeemate Italian sweet cream coffee creamer. the creamer gave it a little extra flavor in it. they were amazing! will make these again!"
"These are great! My hubby loves cinnamon scones...I started him on them about 8-10 years ago now from a well known bakery chain in our town. A few years ago they went out of business, no more scones.Then we got one of the big named coffee shops in town, they had cinnamon scones. After ordering 12 at a time for a few years , you guessed it they discontinued them.Then I decided I would try to make them for him. OMG! You would not believe how long and hard it was to get someone here to order the cinnamon chips. Finally got them! So I tried this recipe because I am NO BAKER. I wanted easy and good. Well let me say I got both with this one! My hubby loves them! I have made them every Sunday for the last 3 weeks. Very good and easy for even a new to baking person. Try this one if you haven't yet. Thanks for helping me get him back something he loves."
"Only one thing to say, absolutely delicious!!! I would love to try making these using chocolate chips as well."
