These Cinnamon Chip Scones are crisp on the outside and moist and full of cinnamon flavor on the inside. The scones are made perfectly with a simple glaze and are the perfect addition to any breakfast or brunch gathering.
Many of you are not really into scones because they can taste like a dry biscuit. I used to think the same thing. I can’t recall the first scone I had, but I remember thinking they weren’t as bad as I thought. Sure they look dry and stale, but they taste wonderful. So I thought of some delicious scone flavors to try, and cinnamon was the first thing that came to mind.
Cinnamon Chips are a rare baking ingredient that I have only seen around the fall and winter seasons. When you see them, I recommend buying a few bags that you can use for various baking recipes. Otherwise, there is a way that you can make homemade cinnamon chips as a replacement.
How to make Homemade Cinnamon Chips
Making homemade cinnamon chips is quite simple. All you need are a few simple ingredients:
- Ground Cinnamon
- Vegetable Shortening
- Light Corn Syrup
All you are going to do is combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix until all of the ingredients are combined. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in a preheated oven to 200 Degrees, and bake for 35 minutes.
Once finished, you will allow the chips to cool completely at room temperature. The cinnamon chip sheet will become hard. Finally, use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut into small chips.
When you wake up and decide to make this scone recipe for breakfast, you will thank me because your home will smell like one big Cinnamon Chip Yankee Candle.
