A recipe from TOH magazine that I hope to try soon, just need to remember to shopped for cinnamon chips. The author wrote this about the scones: “These scones will melt in your mouth,” writes Barbara Humiston of Tampa, Florida. “They’re delicious hot, warm or even cold!”

"Melt in your mouth" is a promise fulfilled with this recipe. Mind you , I've only sampled the one and it was still cozy warm from the oven but WOW. Truly tender, moist, tall, fluffy and crazy delicious. I picked up some cinnamon chips a couple of months ago not having anything in mind at the time but knowing that the right thing would come along :D. If you love scones and cinnamon save this recipe and stock up on cinnamon chips because your going to need them! Yummm.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs(I use a food processor for this). Stir in buttermilk just until moistened. Fold in chips.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 10-12 times or until dough is no longer sticky. Divide in half; gently pat or roll each portion into a 7-in. circle. Brush with butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  3. Cut each circle into six wedges. Separate wedges and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
