Recipe Archive: Cinnamon Chip Scones

by Courtney on October 19, 2011

Yesterday, I was going through some of my older recipes (on an empty stomach, which is never a good thing) and came across a few favorites of mine that I had totally forgotten about. The poor things…

One of them in particular really stood out immediately to me. It only got a small amount of face time here on the blog way back in February, and I really think that it deserves to be shared again. Think of this as the “recipe archives,” if you will?

This recipe for Cinnamon Chip Scones is an all-time favorite of mine.

They are perfect for making on a Sunday morning and having to snack on for the rest of the week ahead.

They’re actually versatile, too. Can’t find cinnamon chips (I find mine – Hershey’s brand – at Hannaford)? Try using butterscotch…or dark chocolate…or peanut butter. Heck, go crazy and try all three if you’re feelin’ spunky.

Either way, these scones are just awesome, so if you’re looking for a perfect brunch, breakfast, or dessert idea, try giving these a shot!

Happy Baking Smile

I have been looking for cinnamon chips EVERYWHERE!!! I can’t find them in Saratoga :( these scones have been on my “must make” list since you first posted the recipe!

These look delish!! I’ve never seen cinnamon chips before in our grocery store, so I’d have to make a point of finding where they sell them. Actually, I’d probably just go the “spunky” route and try the butterscotch, pb, and dark chocolate chips all together – sounds perfect! ;)

cinnamon chips are one of the best creations ever. SO addicting! My mom melted them and used them as an icing on top of brownies:)

GENIUS! I was actually planning on making a chocolate chip pumpkin bread, buuuuuut this may need to change!

Funny, I actually have a bag of cinnamon chips in my pantry with no intended purpose. I think I just found it!

I’m usually not a scone person either because I don’t like the dryness, but these are so moist and delicious!


12 Kelly October 19, 2011 at 2:16 pm

These look wonderful! I can’t tell you how many times I have made Julie’s flourless peanut cookies when I am hungry and searching recipes. Ha..never a good idea. Ever.

This makes me sad because I would honestly love to make cinnamon chip scones….but I have looked everywhere for cinnamon chips and I can never find them! Not even during Christmas was baking is in full swing? Oh well….I’ll have to remember when I’m traveling to keep an eye out since obviously they sell them somewhere! Thanks for the other suggestions:)


15 Danica @ It's Progression Not Perfection October 19, 2011 at 4:04 pm

I was honestly just looking for a recipe for the half bags of peanut butter and cinnamon chips sitting in my pantry–thanks for bringing it “out of the archives”! : )

Oh, yum! These scones look like they would be the perfect treat right now with a big cup of coffee. :) I wonder if I could convince my fiance to make them ;)

Ohhhhh boy do these sound delicious! I’d love a batch with cinnamon, a batch with chocolate, and a batch with butterscotch with chocolate. YUMM. Oh and a good tall glass of almond milk. K thanks.

Okay fine….I’ll go make ‘em myself ;)

I’ll keep this recipe in mind whenever I see those cinnamon chips at the store. Are those chips seasonal? Because I don’t seem to see them very often :(

They can be tough to come by, but I have seen them year-round.

I think that cinnamon chips is like Bigfoot where I am. I swear I saw them once somewhere, but can’t remember too clearly and don’t know where it happened. It could have been a dream. But I swear they’re out there somewhere!

Yum this looks similar to a scone I used to get a Starbucks! I love scones with coffee … they go together like peas and carrots. ;)

Stalker status: I remember making these the day after you posted about them. They turned out so well and I was so proud of myself! I think they lasted like, 3 or 4 days. I need to make them again!

I just made scones for the first time last week. Pumpkin chocolate chip ones and now I’m hooked. They’re so much easier than I thought they’d be. This variation sounds delicious!

Totally going to try these scones! They look so yummy! I saw those cinnamon chips at the store like 2 weeks ago but didn’t know what to do w/them. THANKS! ♥


26 colleen @ thegiftofmondays October 19, 2011 at 9:56 pm

i just made kerry at bakergirl’s pumpkin scones a couple of days ago! first time i had made scones and my boys loved them. they lasted about 2 days and ONLY because i wouldn’t let us eat them all at one sitting.

here’s her link:

i didn’t have heavy cream or half and half so i substituted 2 tbsp milk + 1 tbsp plain greek yogurt and they still came out fab!!!

Yummy! I could just imagine munching on a few of these babies while doing my civil duty, serving on a jury. :D

Oh, and thanks for the evening make-up tip. Turns out I’ve been doing it all wrong for years now!
