Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (one stick) unsalted butter, frozen and shredded
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, plus a bit extra for brushing the tops of the scones
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extra
  • 1 cup cinnamon chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together. Add the butter and cut in with two forks or a pastry cutter until mixture resembles pea sized crumbs.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together heavy cream, egg and vanilla. Add to dry mixture along with the cinnamon chips. Mix until dough forms a thick clump.

  4. Pat the dough into an 8 inch round. Cut into 8 wedges and place on the prepared sheet. Place tray in freezer for 15 minutes.

    Remove from freezer and brush tops with the extra heavy cream. Bake for 18 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack.

    Scones are best on the day they are made, but will keep in an airtight container for 1-2 days.
