These scones have a very light cinnamon flavor.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¾ cup butter
  • 3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ pinch baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 (10 ounce) package cinnamon baking chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place 3/4 cup butter into the freezer for 1 hour. Cut into cubes.
  2. 2 Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. 3 Combine flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl using a whisk. Cut in very cold cubed butter with a pastry blender or using your fingers until you get coarse crumbs.
  4. 4 Create a well in the flour mixture; add buttermilk and stir gently until dough is just moistened. Fold in cinnamon chips.
  5. 5 Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until dough is no longer sticky, 10 to 12 times, and divide in half. Pat or roll each portion gently into a 7-inch circle. Brush melted butter over circles. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon sugar. Cut each circle into 6 wedges. Separate and place scones on an ungreased baking sheet.
  6. 6 Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 13 minutes. Serve warm.

Chef's Notes

You could also bake on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.


  1. This is one really tasty scone!!! My wife says they’re actually better than Starbucks.... What a compliment!
  2. Very good. I used a little less sugar to keep it a little healthier. Next time I make it I might add a little bit more baking powder, just as a preference.
  3. loved them - very flavorful
  4. These scones were very good but I prefer scones with dried fruit in them (dates currants raisins cranberries apricots or blueberries).
