Cinnamon scones double down on cinnamon with cinnamon in the dough and cinnamon chips packed throughout the scones. These cinnamon chip scones are moist, flaky, and perfect with your morning cup of coffee.

They are buttery throughout, crisp on the outside, and have a soft, flaky interior – and you can’t forget their incredible cinnamon flavor!

What Do You Need to Make Cinnamon Scones?

You’ll need cinnamon chips. Depending on where you live, you may be able to find them in the grocery. If you can’t, you can buy them online or make cinnamon chips yourself.

While you can hand-form these cinnamon scones if you don’t care about their shape, I like to make them in a scone pan. The pan makes it so simple to achieve perfect looking scones – and it can do double-duty as a cornbread pan.

How to Make Cinnamon Scones

Whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

Whisking Dry IngredientsCut cold butter into small pieces and mix into dry ingredients until butter looks pea-sized. I like to do this with my hands.

It is very important that you use cold butter. Warm butter will integrate into the matter too much – it’s the little pieces of butter that makes the scones flaky.

In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, heavy whipping cream, and vanilla.

Slowly mix the wet mixture into the dry mixture until just combined – it will be lumpy.

Use your hands to gently fold in the cinnamon chips.

Divide batter evenly between each section of a scone pan.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are slightly browned.

How to Serve Cinnamon Scones

You can eat these all on their own, or you can top them with clotted cream or homemade butter to be extra decadent.

How Long Do Cinnamon Chip Scones Last?

These scones are best on the day you make them. They’re so good that you probably won’t have leftovers.

But, if you do, they will last for a few days at room temperature in an airtight container.

They will also last for months in the freezer when tightly wrapped and stored in an airtight container.

Variations

Raspberry SconesYou don’t need a special pan to make these cinnamon chip scones. You can divide the dough into sections with a knife and bake it on a parchment- or silicone-lined cookie sheet.

For a twist, you could also bake these scones with a crumb topping like the one I use for my raspberry scones.

You could also try baking the scones in tea cups – just make sure the cups are oven-safe.

    Delicious sounding and looking. I have that scone pan. I love cranberry orange scones. I do have half a bag of cinnamon chips…will try with those.

    Best motel we ever stayed at on a vacation was in Williamsburg BECAUSE they had fresh scones and coffee every morning.
