I found the recipe for the scones on the Pinterest, but the original can be found at When I made mine, I cut them into six pieces and baked them individually. I also just patted the dough into a big rectangle rather than the log and disc thing in the directions. (What can I say? I like really big scones.)  I also made a drizzle with confectioner's sugar and a little milk because I felt a little drizzly today.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , chilled (see note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon chips (I used Hershey'OR 2 to 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
!for the topping:
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Make the topping mixture by mixing cinnamon with sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, salt and if using, cinnamon).
  5. Using a large eye side of a cheese grater, grate the chilled butter straight into the bowl with dry ingredients. Cut in with a pastry cutter, until the mixture has coarse crumbs. Add cinnamon chips and stir in.
  6. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and stir in well. Do not overmix.
  7. Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into a log and divide in half.
  8. Working with one half at a time, flatten the dough into a thick disk. Fold in half and then in half again. Flatten into a disk again. Fold twice again. Flatten into a 3/4 inch thick disk.
  9. Transfer the dough disk onto one of the prepared sheets.
  10. Cut into 8 triangles. Gently, separate the scones, leaving about 1/2" space between them.
  11. Sprinkle with the topping mixture.
  12. Bake the scones for 20 to 22 minutes. The scones will come together during baking. That's okay.
  13. Remove from the oven. Let sit on the sheet for 10 minutes.
  14. Place the parchment paper sheet with scones on a cutting board and run the knife through the same seams in the dough to separate the scones.
  15. Cool completely before serving.


  1. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! (Would do happy dance but a very old cat is sleeping on my lap.)

  2. I need to stock up on cinnamon chips during my next trip to the US, they are way too expensive where I live! Can't wait to bake these.

  3. Yes thank you very much! Have a great Easter - hope you are cooking something good.

  4. I order Hershey’s cinnamon chips from Amazon, purveyor of anything on the planet, and they’re available only during the Christmas season. I love cinnamon chip muffins, and no store around here stocks them. Now you’ve gone and given me another recipe I’ll be addicted to; thanks a bunch, friend!
