To make cinnamon chip scones, you’ll need to gather some ingredients. You’ll need flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, butter, sugar, eggs, and of course, cinnamon chips. Start by preheating your oven to 375°F and then sift together the dry ingredients in a bowl. Next, cut the butter into small cubes and add them to the dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar. Then, add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until everything is evenly combined. Finally, fold in the cinnamon chips and pour the dough onto an ungreased baking sheet.

What are some tips and tricks to making the perfect cinnamon chip scones?
Use cold butter: incorporating cold butter into the scone mixture is essential to create a light, fluffy texture. Cut the butter into small cubes, and then use your fingers to work the pieces into the dry ingredients.
- Add the cinnamon chips sparingly: Too many cinnamon chips can lead to a denser texture. Gradually add the chips, tasting as you go and stopping when you reach the desired level of sweetness.
- Glaze for an extra kick: A glaze made with powdered sugar and a splash of milk will make your scones extra delicious.
- Use a biscuit cutter: Using a biscuit cutter will give you the perfect round shape for your scones.
- Let them cool: Allow your scones to cool for about ten minutes before serving. This will give them time to set and ensure that they don’t fall apart when you bite into them.
