Cinnamon Scones

Jump to Recipe

I am an organized person, but not when it comes to my photos. They are a disaster. iPhoto is overloaded with photos because I never organize them. I take way too many photos of food and Caleb and never delete or organize them. They are all backed up on a hard drive and I save the photos that go on the blog in folders, but I never delete the photos from iPhoto. So yesterday, I opened up iPhoto and was determined to sort through the madness and try to get organized. Instead, I spent hours looking at old photos and not organizing. I was having too much fun reminiscing:) I am glad I looked at my old photos, because I found photos of these Cinnamon Scones I made about a month ago and never shared the recipe. The photos got lost in the madness. I am so sorry because these Cinnamon Scones are incredibly delicious. You all need the recipe!

The scones are made with heavy cream, cinnamon, and cinnamon chips. I use Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips, I know they are hard to find sometimes, so if you can’t find them in a store near you, you can order them online on Amazon. You can also leave them out, but I really like the extra burst of cinnamon they add. I also brushed the tops of the scones with heavy cream and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar. These scones remind me of a decadent version of cinnamon toast. They are soft, tender, sweet, and loaded with cinnamon goodness.

Start your weekend off right by making a batch of these Cinnamon Scones for breakfast. They are the perfect weekend breakfast treat. And sorry it took me so long to share the recipe. I am going to try and organize my photos over the weekend. I promise, I will do it this time:) Do any of you Β have any photo organizing tips to share? Thanks!

Cinnamon Scones

These Cinnamon Scones will remind you of a decadent version of cinnamon toast. The scones are sweet, tender, and full of cinnamon goodness!

Prep Time
10 minutes
Total Time
25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon chips I use Hershey's cinnamon chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • For the cinnamon sugar topping:
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat and set aside.
  2. 2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Quickly cut in the butter, using your hands, two knives, or a pastry blender. Mix until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a feel larger butter lumps. Stir in the cinnamon chips. Pour heavy cream over the ingredients and stir with a spatula until dough begins to form. Don't over mix.
  3. 3. Transfer dough to a floured countertop and knead dough by hand just until it forms a ball. Form scones by patting the dough into a 3/4-inch thick circle. Cut the scones into triangles or use a biscuit cutter. Press scraps back together and cut additional scones until dough is used up.
  4. 4. Place scones on prepared baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Using a pastry brush, brush scones lightly with heavy cream. Sprinkle scones with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake scones for 12-15 minutes, or until scones are light brown. Cool scones on a wire cooling rack and serve.
  5. Scones will keep in an air-tight container for up to 2 days, but they really are best eaten the day they are made.

  1. I know what that’s like to try to organize photos. It should be done ASAP or you just end up looking at everything and having a good time, which isn’t such a bad thing. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it’s always better late than never! This looks so good and I’m a sconaholic, will have to make this soon!

  2. This looks amazing but I will have to leave the cinnamon chips out because there’s no way I can find them in Spain!!

    Thanks so much for sharing such great recipes!!

  3. I have lots of photo organizing tips – I work as a training specialist for the Association of Personal Photo Organizers! http://www.appo.org. I would love to share the ABC’s of organizing both printed and digital photos. The association is full of wonderful resources and training for those who want a profession in this new emerging service industry! I would love to chat, contact me!

  4. OH yum…I don’t understand why stores don’t carry these chips they are wonderful!…but yay for Amazon:-). These sound amazing!

    I do the same thing with pictures…I usually end up watching videos from way back when.

  5. Made these this morning !! OMG They are delicious ! I found that the dough, though, was a tad dry and didn’t come together as easily as most scone dough…..I had to work it more than I wanted to, but they turned out wonderful. I may add a tad more heavy cream the next time. Can’t get cinnamon chips in Alberta……’cept at Bulk Barn !! Love that store πŸ™‚

    Thanks for a great recipe πŸ™‚ Will be making it often πŸ™‚

  6. Can this recipe be baked as drop scones, instead of triangles or biscuit circles? If so, does the temperature need to be different?

    1. I haven’t tried making them as stop scones, but I am sure they would work just fine. I would bake them at the same temperature, set the timer a little early to make sure they don’t burn:) Enjoy!

  7. Ok…. I’ve lost my mind or these are so incredibly delicious that I can actually SMELL cinnamon from looking at the pictures – no lie!

    wow.

    can’t wait to try them!

  8. We had to search high and low for the cinnamon chips, but oh, was it worth it! These scones were so yummy!! My family wasn’t too excited when I told them what I was making, but then they tried the scones, and they loved them. Thanks for so many scrumptious recipes! When I want to try something new, your site is always the first place I turn.

  9. Mmm…cinnamon chips are the best! So are scones. These look so delicious! P.S. I feel your pain with photo management. I just reorganized how I go about storing them. It’s more of a pain, but now I have a lot more free space on my hard drive! πŸ˜€ Yay!

  10. These are amazing! My 2 year old has been running around the house yelling at the top of her lungs, “Mmmmmmmmmmmm!” ever since her first bite. πŸ™‚ Perfect treat on our stay-inside-during-the-huge-blizzard day!

  11. Oh these look so good. I’ve been wanting to make these ever since I saw a similar recipe on The Pioneer Woman’s website. Thanks for sharing, these are going on the list!
