I used to work at a bakery that made scones. Berry, chocolate chip, cranberry, and my favorite: Cinnamon chip. Because there’s not much better than butter and cinnamon, in my opinion. We made batch after batch all day everyday, but I still enjoyed my early morning (4am!) cinnamon scone with fresh coffee. I miss working there sometimes for this reason, but I’m also glad I don’t work there anymore for the same reason.
At the bakery we used cinnamon chips, which are essentially like chocolate chips, but cinnamon flavored. I’m not sure the reason behind these as opposed to just using cinnamon, so when I decided to try them at home, I just figured I’d skip it. And they turned out perfect. I’ve made scones with both heavy cream and buttermilk, and I prefer buttermilk as it gives them a bit of a tang that you don’t quite get from cream.
Store these in an airtight container or freeze them if you don’t think you’ll eat them all. Or make them for a brunch or welcome gift.
