- 3-1/4 cups 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
- 3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 package (10 ounces) cinnamon baking chips
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Reviews for Cinnamon Chip Scones
"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?"
