Cinnamon Chip Scones

These scones will melt in your mouth.  They’re delicious hot, warm or even cold!

  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 (10-oz.) pkg. cinnamon baking chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

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.  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 melted butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar.

Cut each circle into six wedges.  Separate wedges and place on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 425 degrees for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned.  Serve warm.

Makes 1 dozen scones.
