Cinnamon and Sugar Cinnamon Chip Scones

I'm on a buttermilk kick....

It makes everything taste like gold and sunshine and melt in your mouth. So kick off your weekend with a perfect mate to your coffee or whatever your morning beverage is...these scones are just scrumptiously perfect! Perfectly scrumptious?

I'm tired...

Cinnamon and Sugar Cinnamon Chip Scones
Pre-heat oven to 425.

3 1/4 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar (plus 2 Tbsp for top)
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tsp. cinnamon, divided
3/4 cup cold, cubed butter
1 cup butter milk
1, 10 oz bag cinnamon chips
2 tbsp. melted butter

In a large bowl, combine flour, 2/3 cup sugar, baking powder, soda, salt and 2 tsp. cinnamon.
(I forgot to add the cinnamon, here)

Cut in butter until it resembles fine crumbs.

so it looks like this:
(I remembered the cinnamon, now)

Mix in buttermilk just until combined, then fold in cinnamon chips.

Dump dough out onto lightly floured surface, and knead 10-12 times.

Divide dough in half, and gently flatten into two 7 inch discs.
Spread each disc with your melted butter.

Mix remaining 2 tbsp. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon.
Sprinkle over melted butter.

Cut each disc into 6-8 wedges, and place on an ungreased baking sheet about 3 inches apart.

Bake for 10-13 minutes.

I ate mine warm out of the oven!
