Cinnamon Chip Scones
2 c. flour
1/3 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/3 c. butter
1/2 c. cinnamon chips, heaping
1/2 c. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla
In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Cut butter into dry ingredients with a pastry blender until mixture reaches a crumbly consistency resembling coarse oatmeal. Mix in cinnamon chips. In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together heavy cream, egg, and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly, being careful not to overwork the dough. On a floured surface, shape dough into a circle about eight inches in diameter. Cut circle into eight equal wedges. Place on a baking sheet either separated or left in a circle. Bake 18 - 20 minutes at 350 degrees until tops are lightly brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Note: When I prepare these, I divide the dough in half, form two balls, and cut each ball into 6 triangles. Bake for 13 - 15 min at 425 degrees.
Thanks Pat for sharing this great recipe!
Oh, those scones look delicious. Who wouldn't want one from that beautiful offering. I visited Civil-la-Tea years ago and I didn't realize it had closed.
What a yummy recipe, and beautiful. I've never tried cinnamon chips before, but really must! This recipe sounds delicious!
Enjoy a wonderful day. You have me dreaming of an awesome trip I took to Gettysburg in my youth. . .
I looked for cinnamon chips at two different grocery stores recently and was disappointed I didn't find them. I will keep looking so I can try this recipe.
