14 scones


  • 3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • cup white sugar

  • cup packed brown sugar (light or dark)

  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¾ cup cold unsalted butter, cut in small pieces

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • ¾ cup cinnamon chips


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

  2. Whisk flour, both sugars, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Cut in butter using the bread hook attachment of an electric mixer until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and vanilla, mixing just until dough is moistened; fold in cinnamon chips.

  3. Drop 1/4 cups of dough 2 inches apart onto a cookie sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 15 to 17 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If you do not have an electric mixer with a dough hook attachment, cut butter into flour mixture with 2 knives or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
