I guess I’m on a scone kick lately because ever since I made these with pumpkin and cranberries, I’ve been dying to make another kind. My all time favorite are cinnamon chip scones from Panera Bread, but I can’t locate cinnamon chips in my local grocery store so I just made my own version without the chips. I have to say they were not lacking in the cinnamon department and were quite tasty.

In fact, these were so good and incredibly moist for a scone. I mean just look at the flaky layers in there. Scones are so easy to make too. For this recipe I combined flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and ground cinnamon; then worked in some cold butter until it resembled coarse meal.

Next form a well and add an egg and heavy cream. Mix well; then shape the dough into an 8-inch round circle approximately 1-inch thick. Brush the top with a little heavy cream; then sprinkle a mixture of granulated sugar and cinnamon on top. Cut the circle into 8 wedges and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350° F for 14-16 minutes until the bottoms turn a light golden brown; then remove from the oven to cool slightly before completely cooling on a wire rack.

This recipe makes eight Cinnamon Scones so if you’re not going to eat them within 1-2 days; I’d recommend freezing them. Wrap them individually with plastic wrap; then place in a storage container or resealable plastic bag and allow them to defrost for 1/2 hour before eating. My family really LOVED these scones and not only are they tasty for breakfast, they make a great afternoon snack with a cup of hot tea or coffee. If you can find cinnamon chips, go ahead and add in about 1/2 cup to give them a little extra cinnamon flavor, I bet you’ll love these even more.  ~Enjoy!
