Rich Cinnamon-Chip Scones

Paper bakery boxes lined with creatively cut tissue paper give these coffeehouse favorites a casual look. Dress up a box with polka-dot ribbon and a trio of fresh cinnamon sticks tied within a bow--their aroma is a clue to the treasures inside. —Bonnie Buckley, Kansas City, Missouri

    This is delicious! It did fall apart a bit so I might have to work on my technique. They tasted so good that I am making a bunch to put in treat boxes for friends and family for Christmas!
