Cinnamon Chip Scones

My new ventures, Cinnamon Chip Scones and Bretzels, required me to purchase some ingredients online, as they were not readily available at my local grocery stores. I was wondering if this was a high or low in my life. But, after tasting these, two things became apparent, (1) I no longer cared, either way, and (2) I was eating another small piece. Should you choose to purchase ingredients online, I highly recommend King Arthur Flour. Not only do they have a wide selection, good prices, and quick turn around time, but they also have fantastic prices on Madagascar Bourbon vanilla (which is, I'm told, the best vanilla that money can buy).

Makes 6 scones

  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • 1 c bread flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 c honey
  • 2/3 c buttermilk
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 c cinnamon flav-r-bites (or cinnamon chips)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prep baking sheet. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Cut in butter. Combine wet ingredients in small bowl. Mix wet into dry and fold in cinnamon chips.

Turn out dough on floured surface and knead 10-12 times, or until dough is no longer sticky. Shape dough and cut into 6 equal pieces. Place scones on baking sheet and let rest for 5 minutes so cinnamon flav-r-bites can absorb moisture. Bake for 20-22 minutes.
