Cinnamon Chip Scones

29 Jun

My son’s baseball team party happened to be in the morning following an early game. So everyone brought breakfast items to share. I brought these and these.

One mom brought Cinnamon Chip Scones. What is a cinnamon chip? Well, I don’t know exactly, but Hershey makes them and I am told that only Albertson’s carries them (at least in our area).

When I opened the bag the smell of the cinnamon chips immediately reminded me of Quaker’s cinnamon flavor instant oatmeal. I think they’d be great in oatmeal cookies. More on that to come…

Many thanks to Kristen Dockan for sharing the recipe:

Combine the following

3 1/4 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

With 1/2 cup butter until mixture is crumbly.

Add 1 cup buttermilk

Stir in 5 oz cinnamon chips (about half a bag).

Gently knead a few times. Divide dough in half and pat each half into a 7 inch circle. Brush with butter and generously sprinkle with sugar. Cut each circle into 6 wedges. Separate wedges and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Remove to rack to cool.
