Cinnamon Chip Scones

Unfortunately I didn’t get a great pic. I love the cinnamon chip scones from Starbucks and really wanted to recreate it so I didn’t have to buy them any more. I searched the internet for a recipe but found nothing. So, I decided to take the plunge and do it myself. Using the recipe for the chocolate chip scones as a base, I made some modifications and they turned out perfectly! I found that baking them for the longer time of 25 minutes makes them more dry and airy like scones should be. Not too dry, though, that they’re tasteless. Just the right texture!

I made this batch to take with us to Branson this weekend. We met up with two other couples in Missouri and had a great time just seeing each other again. These scones were perfect with a cup of coffee each morning and saved us all from spending money on breakfast. They were a hit and I’ll make them again very soon!

(You can find Hershey’s brand cinnamon chips in the baking aisle next to the chocolate chips. It is packaged the same way.)

    I prefer cinnamon chip scones from Au Bon Pain, but could not find a recipe for those. This recipe was very easy to put together. The baking time is perfect, and the texture of the scones is excellent. For my taste though, the cinnamon taste is way too overpowering. The next time I make these, I will halve the ground cinnamon (or maybe leave it out altogether) and I would also halve the amount of cinnamon chips. I would like the scone to be more a marriage of the buttery dough with a nice accent of cinnamon flavor.

    • Diane I agree with you. Au bon pain’s are the ones I was trying to reproduce. You don’t need the cinnamon and you don’t need the whold bag of chips. I will also make them thicker and maybe bake them for 20 minutes not for the full 25 so they’re softer inside. This recipe is really good though.

      • I’ve never tried Au Bon Pain’s, but you two are giving me the nudge to give them a try! Too bad I do not have one around me, so I’ll have to wait until I’m traveling. ;)
