Cinnamon Chip Scones

Today I made some Cinnamon Scones. My sister and son have been asking me to make them for some time and so I did. They turned out really well and so I thought you might like to have the recipe as they are really not like a traditional scone at all. They are more cookie like, sorta. Traditional Scones are really just triangle biscuits and you can make them with any kind of dried fruit or serve them with Honey or Jelly. They are really good but this is a bit different. These are sweeter then scones. Everyone seems to love them so I thought you might like them too.

Cinnamon Chip Scones

Preheat Oven to 375

Be sure and have cookie sheets sprayed ahead of time and the butter cut and everything measured out before starting.

Cutting the butter:  Slice it long way, then turn it over and slice it long way again. Cut off little cubes of it into a bowl and put back into the refrigerator.
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1 C Sour Cream
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking Soda
Beat the Eggs and then whisk in the Sour Cream, Vanilla and Soda, set aside.
  • 4 C Flour
  • 1 ¼ C Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. Cream of Tartar
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 C Butter [cold]
  • 1 C Cinnamon Chips
Place flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cream of tartar and salt in Mixer. Whisk a few times to incorporate. Add Butter and beat slowly or it will fly all over the kitchen, until pea size.

Add Sour Cream mixture and beat just until incorporated and then add chips. You may have to work the chips in with your hands but try with the mixer first. Flour counter top, your hands [arms to the armpit] pastry cloth or board. This dough will be sticky. Work it around with your hands until it is together and then press with your hands. Do this quickly so the dough doesn’t get too warm. I make it about 2 inches thick. Cut out with whatever you have. I use a square cutter or a triangle sometimes.  This will make a lot so I make them big because I’m lazy and don’t want to fiddle in the kitchen forever. If you make the triangle you can make several dozen.

Bake 13 to 16 minutes until brown on bottom [if you make them real big “palm of your hand size” then it takes about 20 or so]

  • 2 C Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 T soft butter
  • ½ tsp. Cinnamon
  • Enough milk to make a thin glaze
Drop a tablespoon on each warm scone and spread around with the back of the spoon. They will drip a bit. These are so good you really don’t need the glaze but I always do it because my family likes it that way.  Hope you enjoy these.
