These scones have a very light cinnamon flavor.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place 3/4 cup butter into the freezer for 1 hour. Cut into cubes.

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Combine flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl using a whisk. Cut in very cold cubed butter with a pastry blender or using your fingers until you get coarse crumbs.

  • Create a well in the flour mixture; add buttermilk and stir gently until dough is just moistened. Fold in cinnamon chips.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until dough is no longer sticky, 10 to 12 times, and divide in half. Pat or roll each portion gently into a 7-inch circle. Brush melted butter over circles. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon sugar. Cut each circle into 6 wedges. Separate and place scones on an ungreased baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 13 minutes. Serve warm.

Cook's Note:

You could also bake on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.

Very good. I used a little less sugar to keep it a little healthier. Next time I make it I might add a little bit more baking powder, just as a preference. Read More

These scones were very good but I prefer scones with dried fruit in them (dates currants raisins cranberries apricots or blueberries). Read More
