cinnamon chip scones
Prep: 25 min.
Bake: 10 min.
3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
1 cup buttermilk
1 package (10 ounces) cinnamon baking chips
2 tablespoons butter, melted
In a large bowl, combine the 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-in. 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. Yield: 1 dozen.
by the way, most of these pictures in the slideshow are taken by lyddie:)
