cinnamon chip scones
12 Servings
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.

i rocked my first ever batch of scones.
just saying.
i also used a mix of whole wheat flour (freshly ground, mmm, still warm) and all purpose flour.
the texture was great.
