Guys, I don’t know about you, but I look forward to my afternoon cup of coffee like nobody’s business. And if I have a treat to enjoy along with it, all the better. It’s one of those simple pleasures that make life happy, don’tcha think? The girls and I made these yummy scones last weekend, and we all said they taste like a cinnamon roll. They were so good. I’ve been enjoying one each day this week with my coffee and couldn’t wait to share them with you.
Cinnamon Chip Scones
Combine 2 ½ c. flour, 1/3 c. sugar, 3 tsp. baking powder, and ½ tsp. cinnamon.
Cut in ½ c. cold butter.
Stir in 2/3 c. cinnamon baking chips. (These were a bit challenging for me to find…I ended up finding them at Wal-Mart with the chocolate chips. They’re Hershey brand.)
Whisk 1 c. half and half or heavy cream with 1 egg. Stir into crumb mixture.
Knead dough 10 times on floured surface; transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and pat into a 9-inch circle. Cut into wedges.
Brush with more cream, then top with a mixture of ½ tsp. each coarse sugar and cinnamon.
Bake at 400 degrees for 14-16 mins.
Hope you make and enjoy these…you deserve a break in your day!
