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?
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.

Cut in butter until it resembles fine crumbs.

(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!
