Really good. I created a vanilla glaze from vanilla extract, confectioners sugar and light cream and drizzled it onto each scone. They were wonderful!

I made them with Hershey's sea salt caramel chips! Yum! Can you use this recipe with fruits like apricots or blueberries?

Has Anyone tried making these without the cinnamon chips but with a cinnamon streusel throughout? I can't get cinnamon chips today and I'd like to make Cinnamon Scones for our trip down South. Suggestions???

I didn't know they made cinnamon chips. I usually use butterscotch which would be good too.

These were absolutely outstanding. I had cinnamon chips on hand from a recipe that only called for a few tablespoons. I could never figute out how to get rid of the remaining chips. The scones baked up high, moist with a great texture. Ok, the rest of the story is I only was able to eat one last night after I made them to have with morning coffee. Unfortunately, my yellow lab ate the reamining 11 scones when I forgot to hide them from her. NOW , I cannot find more cinnamon chips in any stores near me!!

These are easy to make but I always double the recipe or half the chips. They have been a hit at work for years. For the topping I use cinnamon sugar instead of just sugar as I love cinnamon. I live outside of North America but when I visit I have to order the chips through Amazon because they are unavailable at most stores in the US and Canada.

These are great. I do not put sugar on them before the oven. Just brush with the butter. Added a glaze; 1C powdered sugar, 1 t cinnamon, 1/2 t espresso powder add milk to achieve heavy drizzle consistency and drizzle over scones after they've cooled a bit

Very good recipe. I used tiny chocolate chips. Next time I will use fruit . Easy and adaptable.
