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.
