Cinnamon Chip Scones

July 13, 2012

Another yummy scone recipe. I really love scones. They’re perfect for breakfast, with coffee, or tea, for brunch. They’re so easy to make, and always a crowd pleaser.

These are full of cinnamon chips (which you can find by the chocolate chips at your grocery store), and sometimes you bite into a pocket of melt-y butter. Best thing ever.

We’ve been having really hot, ridiculous weather but that hasn’t stopped me from baking. I think I might have a problem. At least I do all my baking in the morning. That’s something, right?

Cinnamon Chip Scones

recipe adapted from The Coupon Project


  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon chips
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 3 T honey
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk (or 1/3 cup milk mixed with 1/2 tsp lemon juice)
  • 1-2 T sugar mixed with 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix your flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon chips. Grate in your butter and mix until crumbly.
  3. Separate the egg white and yolk. Set the egg white aside.
  4. In another bowl, mix your egg yolk, honey, and buttermilk. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix until everything is incorporated.
  5. On a slightly floured surface, knead the dough a few times to make sure everything is really mixed together. Then roll your dough into a ball, put on your lined baking sheet, and pat out until it’s a half inch thick and 8 inches in diameter. Cut into 8 equally-sized pieces.
  6. Whisk the egg whites until it’s foamy, and brush over tops of scones. Sprinkle cinnamon/sugar mixture on top.
  7. Bake 15-20 minutes or until scones are light brown and completely baked through.
  8. Enjoy!
