  • 3-1/4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 package (10 ounces) cinnamon baking chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened. Fold in chips.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 10-12 times or until dough is no longer sticky. Divide in half; gently pat or roll each portion into a 7-in. circle. Brush with butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  3. Cut each circle into six wedges. Separate wedges and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.

These were excellent. I only had about half a bag of cinnamon chips, but it was plenty.

I add a little cinnamon to the dough, sprinkle the tops with some Sugar -in-the-Raw, for the crunch, and drizzle with a little powdered sugar glaze, wow!! Pretty great and very close to what you can buy at Panera or Starbucks, for a lot less money. These are a weekend regular

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.
