Cinnamon Scones
Yield: 12
Write a review
  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. ⅓ cup sugar
  3. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  4. ½ teaspoon salt
  5. 4 tablespoons cold salted butter, cut into pieces
  6. ¾ cup cinnamon morsels*
  7. ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons cold heavy 
whipping cream
  8. ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  9. Garnish: turbinado sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, whisking well. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add cinnamon morsels, stirring to blend.
  4. In a liquid-measuring cup, combine cream and vanilla extract, stirring to blend. Add to flour mixture, stirring until mixture is evenly moist. (If dough seems dry, add more cream,
 1 tablespoon at a time.) Working gently, bring mixture together with hands until a dough forms.
  5. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently 4 to
5 times. Using a rolling pin, roll dough to a ½-inch thickness. Using
a 3¼-inch triangular-shaped cutter, cut 12 scones from dough, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place scones
2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  6. Garnish scones with a sprinkle of turbinado sugar, if desired.
  7. Bake until edges of scones are golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the centers comes out clean, approximately 20 minutes.
  8. Serve warm.

  1. I made these scones the other day, simply wonderful!!! I pared them with a tea sample of Duke Cardiff from Simpson & Vail. I wonder if it will be ok if I include the recipe in my tea blog?

  2. Hershey has apparently stopped manufacturing cinnamon chips. Amazon still sells some, but for twice the original price!

  3. Instead of cookie cutters to shape your scones, you could use a pizza cutter to cut line and make shapes of your own choosing without having scrapes to re-roll.

  4. These were so good! I love cinnamon, and I have always loved cinnamon chip scones. I will definitely make these again
