cinnamon scones

They're cinnamon chips. And they are so good. I mentioned I had just used my last bag and was having a hard time finding them in my area. A sweet friend mailed me a big box so this (along with chocolate chip cookies) has been my "go to" cookie the last few weeks. Not really a cookie, but I make them small, cookie size. Have them ready for after school snacks. And pack them in lunches the next day.
The dough is sticky.
So when you roll it out, make sure you use enough flour. And roll to about 1/4" thickness.
I was brushing with egg and sprinkling the cinnamon/sugar on each one individually. Until my mom was here when I made a batch. "Brush and sprinkle the entire surface and then cut", she said. Genius.
They are light and fluffy. And biting into the cinnamon chip is, well, yumm. And do you know what they go really well with?
Yarn!

Mini Cinnamon Scones
::2 cups all-purpose flour::2 TBLS sugar::1 TBLS baking powder::1 tsp salt::1 1/2 sticks cold unsalted butter, diced::2 extra large eggs, lightly beaten::1/2 cup cold heavy cream::1 cup cinnamon chips::1 egg beaten with 2 TBLS water, for egg wash::1/4 cup sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon for top. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend in cold butter and mix until batter is in pea-sized pieces. Combine the eggs and heavy cream and add to mixture. Combine until just blended. Add cinnamon chips. Roll out onto floured surface to 1/4" thickness. Brush with egg mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Cut into squares and then cut each square diagonally. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 400˚ for 12-15 minutes.

Enjoy your weekend.

A small, cookie-sized scone is a brilliant idea! Thanks much for the recipe -- I am dying to try it.

RW said...

It's been ages since I ate some scones... Cinnamon chocolate chips? I wonder if our grocery has them... They sure look delicious! And it's a definite plus if it goes well with yarn!!! Enjoy the weekend!

Oh these look REALLY good... I wonder if I can get cinnamon chips in Canada? Must go look...

alligator said...

Wow! Those sound amazing! And unique, I don't think I've ever tried anything like that before. I'm definitely going to be on the look-out for cinnamon chips. I'll let you know if I find any. I wonder if I could make my own?

Jan said...

Yum!!! How's that cardi coming??

Becky said...

Yum! I forgot about cinnamon chips. They stopped carrying them in the grocery store that I frequent. This recipe is going to make me go on a mission to another grocery. We plop a few chips in pancakes. Good Stuff!

gaylen said...

Man those look good. I don't know where you find this stuff. :) g

Sara said...

Thanks for the recipe! I can't wait to try these. Yum.

I like this idea much better that the green drink. Too bad those scones don't have the same good effect !

Ellieboo said...

How good do they look - must have a go for sure

Paige said...

Goodness, do those sound (and look!) super yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'm gonna make those next week for sure.

Susan said...

Oh my, you have really found something there. I will look for these chips ASAP. The scones look wonderful. And....so does the knitting.

Frances said...

Like others who've commented before me, I will be on the lookout for cinnamon chips.

Definitely got a glimpse of that pretty blue knitting on the left side of one scone close up.

May we have a close up of the blue knitting with any scone crumbs at the edge of that photo?

Best wishes.

Heather said...

Wow, I've never seen those chips. Looks tasty!

Sarah said...

My mom makes scones with those chips and we love them! We also made some recently with espresso flavored chips and they were delish as well. We do have a hard time finding those cinnamon chips too at times. Now I have another excuse to eat them - they go well with yarn! ;)

Shelley in SC said...

Ohhh . . . so . . . yummy!! Of course I think everything goes with yarn!

Lanora said...

Brilliant and I will have to try.

GardenPig said...

A Write Life said...

Those look yummy. And duh! Everything goes well with yard doesn't it?

Laurie said...

Several years ago I made Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip cookies at Christmas, and they were such a hit that friends and family have asked for them ever since...and I can't find freakin' cinnamon chips anywhere... The scones look delicious!

amywb said...

I will definitely be making those. Thanks!

Nantucket Dreams said...

love cinnamon, love scones...sounds like a winner recipe to me!

Lisle said...

Since I left Utah for the Northeast, it's been hard to find anyplace that sells those cinnamon chips consistently. I find 'em somtimes at the Christmas Tree Shop, or the Job Lots store. When I do, I buy everything I can. And the mint ones--anybody know if they still sell the Andes Mint chips? I miss those, too.

I'm trying scones tomorrow with some of my stash. Thanks!

Lisle said...

Oh, I forgot! I've a friend who just ordered some baking stuff online, and in the package were MINI cinnamon chips. YUM!! I'm going to find those, too.

Heather said...

I really love he way that you cut these scones. Having to eat gluten free, and the way that GF dough has trouble sticking together, I was always at loss for how to cut scones. I think that you might have just helped me to figure it out. These look delicious :). Hope it was a great weekend

Caffeine Girl said...

Those look so yummy. I think I'm going to HAVE to try this!

stitching under oaks said...

anything that goes good with yarn is a hit in my book. Aren't mothers so smart!? Thanks for sharing and have a great week.

kim said...

Okay, one of these days, I WILL find those cinnamon bits and make those scones. For some reason, I feel less guilty about eating a scone than a cookie. I think it's purely psychological.

apryl deeter photography said...

whoa... those look awesome! gonna have to hunt down some of those chips:)

ColorSlut said...

Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to test it out!

Kristyn Knits said...

what a sweet friend! and one smart mama! looks like you're feeding your family well. :)

Becky said...

Instead of cream my recipe calls for Hazelnut coffee creamer...very yummy! One of my family favs for breakfast:)

Denise | Chez Danisse said...

I love cinnamon, but have never heard of a cinnamon chip. The mini scones are so cute!

the treat girl said...

awwwh.......I'm in you're area, and I've never seen cinammon chips! But when I travel to NY this weekend I'll be sure to look for some so I can try this recipe!! Thanks for sharing!

Pat said...

Would you repeat how much flour is called for - I can't quite tell - is it 1/2 cup or 1 and 1/2 cups? They sound delish!

Knitting Out Loud said...

Wow, sounds delicious!

molly said...

And to think I've never had a cinnamon chip. Obviously, an oversight.

Stacey said...

Those look so yummy and you made it look so simple to make. :)

Seanna Lea said...

I love cinnamon chips. They are a great add in for oatmeal cookies too on those rare times I don't want chocolate!
