Cinnamon chip scones

Ok I'm really excited for spring to finally come! It has finally started to warm up here in central NY. You know, its nice to be able to walk down the street without freezing your hands off : ) So being in a great spring mood, I decided to make scones. I love scones. They are perfect almost anytime of the day. Once you make homemade scones, the pre-packaged stuff will taste like lumps of rock. Generally, I'm not one for cinnamon, but my mom loves cinnamon, so the scones were created originally for my her. I couldn't find a recipe online, so I ended up making these without a recipe to follow. I wrote down the proportions, and have made them ever since. What makes these scones extra yummy is the cinnamon chips.I find that the best cinnamon chips are made by Hershey's. So, you know the drill. You cut the butter into the flour mixture and then add the stuff.Mmm cinnamon chips. Then add the cinnamon mountain!Then you add the wet ingredients, and shape.I know what you thinking! Omg look at all the scones! How many can somebody eat? Yeah, I had to make a double batch, but not for me, for my family's insatiable thirst for scone goodness.Cinnamon Chip Scones

  • 1 cup cinnamon chips
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup 1/2 and 1/2
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Cut the butter into the mixture of flour, sugar, baking powder,cinnamon, and salt. Add chips and toss.

In a separate bowl, beat cream,egg, and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients. Try not to handle the dough to much.

Shape into 8 lumps. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake at 375 degrees for about 20 min.

Those scones look absolutely delicious! I love anything with cinnamon in it and those look like they would be great with a nice cup of tea.

I have looked for cinnamon chips for so long and can't seem to find them. I have several recipes that call for them. I guess I'll keep looking and I bet these are great inscones.

Cinnamon chocolate chips? What a great find!

The scones must have smelled awesome when they were baking.

Kevin said...

The smell of baking cinnamon is one of my favorites. These cinnaomn scones look amazing! I am going to have to look for some of those cinnamon chips.

Lemmonex said...

Yum. I always have a hell of a time finding cinnamon chips, though. Also, you just shaped these by hand?

ovenhaven said...

It keeps raining here in Singapore, and I'm craving for some warm fresh-from-the-oven scones. Yours look simply delightful, and I must say that cinnamon chips sound really good! I've never heard of them here!

Nick said...

These look delicious Jessy! I love a cinnamon crumb-type topping on anything! I've never heard of cinnamon chips though.

I'm going home to NY for a week or so and am really excited not to be freezing!!

Cinnamon chocolate chips - hmmm...don't think I've ever seen them. I thought I found heaven when I found raspberry chocolate chips. These look like a great accompanyment for tea.

Bellini Valli said...

Cinnamon chocolate chips are probably one of those things you can find in the States, but not here...at least not yet. These would be equally as delicious with plain ones...I hope:D

pinknest said...

Indigo said...

Ohh I wish we could get cinnamon chips in Britain! All the same, your scones look great, just what I'm in the mood for...

Cakespy said...

These look simply to die for.

Cinnamon chips! How inspiring! I know scones don't really have a season, but they seem particularly spring-y to me for some reason.

You've put the crave in me...

"Once you make homemade scones, the pre-packaged stuff will taste like lumps of rock." You put it perfectly. This looks delicious; I love cinnamon scones!

Aran said...

Oh yum... scones and cinnamon non the less! Great!

Katy said...

i think cinnamon chips might be the best food ever, come to think of it. i bet these are great!

Big Boys Oven said...

looks very yummy! well baked!

Jenny said...

My grocery store isn't super well-stocked, so no cinnamon chips there. I might have to give this a try with some modifications...something tells me that blueberry-butterscotch scones wouldn't be terrible?

Jessy and her dog Winnie said...

That actually sounds really yummy!

RecipeGirl said...

I love those cinnamon chips! They look like they're great in scones. I made them in biscotti not too long ago.

Kate / Kajal said...

i'm yet a scone virgin. And these BTW look amazing. Cinnamon chips sound perfect for them.

cakewardrobe said...

You and your family will be having lots of tea time! How fun! Looks sooooo yum!

daphne said...

beautiful. Nothing beats the fresh smell and taste of scones for morning tea.

Camemberu said...

I'm not much for cinnamon either but these look scrumptious! And I've never encountered cinnamon chips before. Interesting!

Bonnie Leigh said...

These look absolutely amazing!

Hi! I know its kind of wierd to leave a comment on such an old post, but I've been searching for a recipie to this effect since I had my first cinnamon chip scone a couple days ago. how do the cinamon chips cook out? do they end up like crunchy bits of cinnamon sugar or do they stay kind of creamy like chocolate? I'm trying to figure out how my school does it. Keep baking! You have no idea how much power it will give you over your college friends! :D

Lissa said...

I've been searching for a recipe for these since I had my first one at Panera and fell in love. But this recipe wasn't like their so I'll be searching for another one. Followed this recipe to a T. This recipe yielded an extremely wet dough. 3/4 C half & half I think is too much. The dough was a mess there was no handling it too much. They couldn't be shaped into anything other than a blob. They baked flat and turned out very rubbery. The flavor wasn't even good. I was very disappointed.

Taylor said...

I am going to try these! Look out for pics at http://sometimeshavingitall.blogspot.com

Lissa, I agree. I am in Australia and fortunately I have a USA Foods shop close by which sells Hershey's CInnamon Chips for $7 a bag (very expensive!). That bad and all my other ingredients have gone to waste on this recipe. I also followed the recipe exactly and got a very wet, sticky dough which I couldn't shape and knew something was wrong. Baked them anyway and they turned into a flat mess in the oven. Waste of good cinnamon chips! Not impressed at all.

This was one of the first recipes that I had baked today, as i haven't baked in a while I wasn't sure how it would turn out.But after reading some of the other comments and taking there advice I ended up using 1/2 of the 1/2 and 1/2.. if that makes any scene haha ;) but it worked wonders. and I also used butterscotch instead.Anyway i was able to make around ten with a additional big heart, ill post pictures soon. Thanks for posting <3
P.S i made tye dye cupcakes to.
P.S.S.I made a account just so i could tell you ;) [and upload/ share stuff]

Cinnamon chips? I never heard of these before!!!

I love cinnamon chips! I just made some cinnamon chip scones myself! I’m so used to rock-hard chewy, tough, dry, BLAND scones, but finally, these changed my life!! Finally, a scone that’s buttery, tender, soft, and delicate. Mmm. Literally the best thing that I’ve made.

I used a slightly different recipe than yours with no eggs - so mine are more like a traditional scone - so soft, tender, buttery, and flaky! Almost biscuit-like! But in a totally awesome, unique, and SWEET way!
