For the Scones

  • 3/4 cup half and half
  • 2/3 cup cinnamon chips
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pats
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Filling

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 3 tabelspoons light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

For the Glaze

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon water


For the Scones:

Preheat oven to 400°.

Combine the cinnamon chips with the half and half in a small bowl.  Let the mixture rest(this creates a cinnamon flavored milk).  While the cinnamon mixture is resting, get started putting together the rest of the ingredients.  In a large bowl add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Whisk to combine.  Cut butter into pieces, add to the flour mixture, using a pastry blender cut the butter into the flour making sure to leave chunks of butter through out the dough.  Add the eggs and vanilla to the cinnamon milk, whisk to combine.  Pour into the flour mixture.  Stir until just combined.  Pour onto a floured surface.  Pat the dough into a 9-inch square. 

Brush on the butter for the filling, sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon on top.  Fold one edge into the center and over the filling.  Fold the remaining edge over the center.  Gently pat into a 3-inch by 18-inch rectangle.  Cut the rectangle into SIX 3-inch pieces.  Transfer squares to a cookie sheet or baking pan lined with parchment paper.  Cut each square in half diagonally to form a rectangle (look below for a way to make these into mini scones).  Separate 1-inch apart.  Bake 18 minutes.  Cool before adding the glaze.

For the Glaze:

In a medium bowl whisk together the sugar, cinnamon and water until creamy and there are no lumps.  Pour into a zip top bag and drizzle over the scones or use a fork to drizzle.  NOTE:  If you would like the glaze to be more for dipping the scone into simply add more water but ONLY a tiny bit at a time.  It doesn't take much for the glaze to become too runny.

For Mini Scones:

To achieve mini scones....cut the squares in half straight up and down and then cut the smaller piece on the diagonal getting 4 scones from on square instead of 2.

    • Hi CanadianBaker, I’m sorry I really don’t. I think these scones would still be delicious with out the chips. Thanks for visiting! 🙂

  1. Hi Becky, You’re right these scones are delicious. I got this recipe from my Mom’s recipe box….she had hand written it so I didn’t know where it came from. The recipes do seem to be almost exact.

    • Oh….that sounds good Condace. Like Mexican chocolate with the cinnamon. The reason I soak the chips is the give the scones extra cinnamon flavor. You don’t have to soak your chips but it will add a little bit more of a chocolate flavor if you do. 🙂
