Cinnamon Chip Scones - Daily Breakfast

It seems that rituals define us as humans.  They are all over the place in our daily life.  There is a very strict morning ritual here in our house that consists of two things.  First and foremost is coffee!!  Strong, Strong, Strong double lattes.  We use a Nespresso Citiz machine and it's the easiest thing in the world, especially considering how excellent the coffee is.  Second are Cinnamon Chip Scones!  Cinnamon chips are only a seasonal grocery item where we live so we have to order them by the case.  Kind of ridiculous, but so worth it.  They are the most requested recipe from visitors to the house.

We use a recipe from Sunny, in Valencia CA.  We do not know her, but we do know her recipe.  Here is a link to the recipe:


How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in mixing bowl. Cut in butter slowly, mixing well.
  • In a seperate bowl, combine egg yolk, vanilla, and buttermilk. Add to dry ingredients, mixing completely. Stir in cinnamon chips.
  • On a floured surface, pat out dough (with hands) to rounded mound 1/2" thick. Cut into 6 scones, place on ungreased cooking sheet or in a cast iron scone pan.
  • Brush egg white over scones and sprinkle cinnamon sugar, to taste, over scones. Bake 18-20 minutes.
