      Mmmmm...These were great! The only change I made is in stead of a cup of butter, I cut in 1/2 cup butter and added 1/2 cup apple sauce with the wet ingredients.

      This is my favorite scone recipe of all time!
      A few suggestions:
      - If you use parchment paper under them, they will turn a nice, even, light brown
      - Mix the butter into the flour mixture with your fingers. It takes a little longer, but it's worth it. I've tried using a pastry blender and a cuisinart, but neither method worked as well.
      - You can get terrific mini cinnamon chips year round at I got good results by mixing them into the flour/butter mixture before adding the sour cream.
      - I divided one batch into four 5" circles and cut them into 6 wedges each. They took about 18-19 min.
      - I like to brush scones with cream or milk, and then sprinkle them with turbinado sugar before baking. On a whim I tried brushing them with coconut milk the last time, and it worked pretty well.
      - Don't overcook them. They come out of the oven very soft, but they will firm up after they cool.

      Thank you Najwa for posting this recipe.

      These scones were awesome! I used all 4 teaspoons of cinnamon ~ we are real cinnamon lovers. They were perfect! I made 16 scones right before bed and the next time I looked the kids had polished off 6 of them. The rest were gone at breakfast. We will definately be making these often. Thanks so much for sharing.
