A family friend made these over Christmas and I absolutely fell in love. I normally don’t like scones – they tend to be dry and over baked. These are perfectly soft and easy to make! Having them with a glass of milk for breakfast – TO DIE FOR!
- 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
- 1 cup buttermilk (or milk – see note below in directions)
- 1 package (10 ounces) cinnamon baking chips
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted (optional)
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt.
Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir in buttermilk just until moistened. (I have also done this recipe with skim milk when I was out of buttermilk and they turned out just fine!)
Fold in chips.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 10-12 times or until dough is no longer sticky.
Divide in half; gently pat or roll each portion into a 7-in. circle.
You can now brush them with butter and sugar – I skip this step!
Cut each circle into your desired amount of wedges.
Separate wedges and place on an baking sheet.
Bake at 425° for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom.
