Cinnamon Chip Scones

Cinnamon Chip Scones created by Lalaloula

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!”

directions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    **Would recommend adding the correct amount of milk, the amount specified in the recipe.** Didn't have enough butter so I cut a forth off all ingredients in the recipe aside from the buttermilk because I forgot to add less. I'm sure the scones would have turned out better had I added the correct amount of milk. They remained doughy for longer and, even after cooking completely, don't have the proper crumble of scones. I didn't have cinnamon chips, so I replaced them with chocolate chips, which seemed to work well. I also used all the butter in the scones, so I put a touch of vegetable oil on top, then the sugar, which also worked. The end product also tasted good (but crumblier would have been better, so follow the recipe). Still, great recipe for beginners. Just trust that "cutting in the butter" is just like it sounds. If you're trying, it should turn out well.

    These have a nice flavor, I reduced the amount of cinnamon chips because I find them to be a bit sweet for me. The texture was a odd though and I can't figure out why as this isn't that much different than my normal scone recipe - they came out chewy which was off putting though my DH didn't mind it as much as I did. They got mixed reviews at work, most people did like the flavor, but they didn't all get eaten which is pretty unusual. Made for PRMRT

    WOW, these scones are amazing! They are fluffy, moist, crunchy and flaky at the same time with such a yummy cinnamon taste. Mmmm! I made half the recipe using only 4 tbs of butter and leaving out the sugar in the dough completely. I also left out the salt (as I find cinnamon chips to be quite salty) and reduced the sugar on top to 1 ts. That way they were still super sweet for our taste and I could eat one more. ;)<br/>I prefer to make round scones, so that's what I did and I ended up with 9 nicely sized ones that were devoured quite quickly.<br/>Ill surely make these again, one of the best scones recipes Ive had in a long time. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing these here with us, diner!<br/>Made and reviewed for the Best of 2011 Tag Game January 2012.
