Basic Cinnamon Chip Scones

November 2, 2009

2 cups unbleached, all purpose flour
1T baking powder
2T sugar
1/2t salt
6 T butter
¼ cup sour cream
¼ cup buttermilk
1 egg
½ cup cinnamon chips

Mix dry ingredients and cut in butter. Mix wet ingredients and add to dry; stir to bring dough together, then knead a few times to make a nice dough. Add in chips and knead to incorporate. At this point you can either prepare them for baking as in the previous recipe, or you can just pull off mounds of dough and place them on the baking sheet for a more rustic looking scone. Bake at 425 for about 12 minutes.

*While you can find Hershey’s cinnamon chips by the chocolate chips in certain grocery stores, they are not available everywhere for some reason. King Arthur’s chips are far superior, do not contain additives and you can order online through their web site, so no one has an excuse for not making these.
