I’ve never had a scone before a co-worker of Hubby’s sent some home with him a few months ago. We LOVED them so I made him get the recipe. I just finally decided to try them and they are SO easy and tasty!
Cinnamon Chip Scones
3 1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/3 c plus 2 TBS sugar (divided)
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 c softened butter, cubed
1 c buttermilk
1 (10 oz) package cinnamon baking chips
2 TBS melted butter
Preheat oven to 425
1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/3 c sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the buttermilk until just moistened. Fold in the chips.
2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 10-12 times until no longer sticky. Divide dough in half and gently roll/pat each portion into a 7-inch circle. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar.
3. Cut each circle into 6 wedges. Separate and place on an UNGREASED baking sheet. Bake at 425 for 10-13 minutes or until lightly brown. Serve warm…or cold. They’re great however!
