Can you guys tell I have a little obsession with cinnamon chips?? They’re amazing! Unfortunately, not that great for you considering all of the sugar but who is worried about that when they’re biting into a delicious, warm scone! Not me I know that’s for sure!
They never stood a chance…not with me in close proximity. I really don’t know what it is about these scones, I don’t go nuts over any other scone in particular, but you might say that I’m addicted to these. That’s why I absolutely had to share this recipe with all of you.
I don’t have much else to say other than I promise you these are amazing. And if you’re not looking to inhale a whole batch of scones I suggest you have others around to indulge with you, it’s the best way to do it.
Cinnamon Chip Scones
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups cinnamon baking chips
1 egg, separated
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup cinnamon chips
Preheat oven to 375°F
Combine the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add butter slowly, mixing well.
In a separate bowl combine egg yolk, vanilla, and buttermilk. Add dry ingredients, mixing completely. Stir in cinnamon chips.
On a floured surface, roll out dough (with hands) to 1/2″ thickness. Cut into scones, place on an ungreased cooking sheet, and brush egg white over scones.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Transfer scones to cooling rack and let cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!!
