Cinnamon Chip Scones
Recipe Submitted by the Anna Vs

These scones are great! They are my Daughter, Heather’s favorite. I make them when ever she visits. Our guests love them too!

3 cups flour

1/3 c plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided

2-1/2 t. baking powder

½ t baking soda

½ t salt

¾ cup of cold butter

1 cup buttermilk

1 2/3 Cup (10 oz) Cinnamon Chips

2 T butter melted

Heat oven to 425

Stir together flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl. Cut butter in to ½ inch slices, using fingers or pastry blender, mix butter into flour mixture until coarse crumbs form. Add buttermilk, stir with fork, just until ingredients are moistened and soft dough forms. Add cinnamon chips. Gather dough into a ball pressing gently to hold together. Turn out onto slightly floured work surface. Knead briefly, about a dozen times. Cut dough in half.

Roll or pat one piece of dough at a time into a 7 inch circle, ½ inch thick. Brush one circle with 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Sprinkle with sugar. Cut circle into 6 triangles, place triangles on un-greased cookie sheet. Repeat for second circle.

Bake 10 -12 minutes until tops are golden. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
