Cinnamon Chip Scones

I have a thing for the Cinnamon Chip Scones at Panera Bread, so the other day I was looking around for the recipe. Came across this recipe and gave it a try. Now I did add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the mix and to the cinnamon on the top of the scones. I really like cinnamon. Boy were they delicious, actually too good.

Now I realize some of you have enough snow already and this picture is just another cold snowy one but here in Oklahoma we are in a very serious drought and we will take any moisture we can get. We had rain then some sleet and then this morning we woke up to this. A couple of inches of snow.  
And a warm scones with a cup of hot coffee really hits the spot.


Cinnamon Chip Scones

(from Simple and Delicious magazine)
12 servings

3 1/4 cups flour
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon (my add)
3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
1 cup buttermilk
1 package (10 ounces) cinnamon baking chips
2 tablespoons butter, melted

sugar and cinnamon mixture for top (mine again)

Combine 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 inch 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 and enjoy!

I had been ask where did I find the cinnamon chips. I found them at the local store by me. They were with the chocolate chips. I had heard that Walmart sells them also. If you can not find them at your stores you can order them here at King Arthur Flour Co.


  1. Oh my, never heard of cinnamon chips, but this sounds delicious! Love scones! I sure hope I can find them at the grocer! Thanks for sharing the recipe

  2. I never heard of them either....or have I ever eaten a scone. But boy I am going to now!!! This has made me hungry.....lol I enjoy the snow, we have enough of it; and have been out snowshoeing a lot. It makes the winter go by faster....lol

  3. Me either, never heard of those chips! That would be great with some diced apples and raisens added :)

  4. Ditto-I've never heard of cinnamon chips, but my family would love this recipe! No snow in our part of Oklahoma. :( We seem to have a precipitation hole around us as most weather fronts miss us.

  5. Had to go into blog land and find you and Thank you again. my daughter bought the cinnamon chips yesterday, she found them in Walmart of all places... and I just finished making these this morning! Oh my goodness, DELICIous! We have a family scone recipe that is a favorite, but these will also go in my handwritten family favorites recipe book. My husband has been quite pleased with these as well! No eggs, so it is also a great quick fix recipe if surprise company over for tea. Thanks for posting

  6. I just made some cinnamon chip scones myself! They were so buttery, tender, soft, and delicate. Mmm. Literally the best thing that I’ve made. Definitely not the rock-hard, chewy, tough, dry, BLAND scones that I was used to. Bleh!

    I used a slightly different recipe than yours with less flour so it comes out super moist! Mmm.


  7. I should not be reading this when I'm hungry. LOL I have never heard of cinnamon chips. Apparently I'm not the only one. I have to go shopping - out of hairspray - so I'll see if I can find them. If so I'm making these this week.

  8. I have not made scones in years... Where do you find cinnamon chips?

  9. MMmmmm these scones look dreamy, I could do with one right now, and a cup of tea if you're offering! After such a hot summer today has been quite cold and I think your scones would go down a treat! Do you mind me asking what are cinnamon chips? I have never seen any in my country. Have a happy Easter Carolyn!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
