Ingredients

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup cold butter, cubed (1½ sticks)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 package (10 ounces) cinnamon baking chips or 2 cups or DIY cinnamon chips
  • FOR THE GLAZE
  • 5 c. powdered sugar
  • ½ c. milk
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • CINNAMON CHIPS
  • ⅔ c. sugar
  • 3 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable shortening
  • 2 tbsp. light corn syrup
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 Degrees
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in the butter and blend into the flour mixture by using a fork or a pastry cutter until the mixture looks like course crumbs. Stir in the buttermilk and mix with the rest of the ingredients until everything is moist. Fold in the cinnamon chips to ensure that are evenly distributed.
  3. Turn to a lightly flour surface (it will look very crumbly but that is okay) and begin to knead the dough until the dough is no longer crumbly. This should take 10-12 times. Roll the dough into a long rectangle and the dough is about ½ inch thick and cut into triangles. Place on well greased or well sprayed baking sheets and then brush the tops with butter. Bake for 10-13 minutes. Once finished baking place on a cooling rack to allow them to cool before dipping into the glaze.
  4. FOR THE GLAZE: Mix together the powdered sugar, milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and pinch of salt until a smooth glaze forms. Take the cooled scones and dip into the glaze and place them back on the baking sheet. Repeat this process until all scones are covered.
  5. FOR THE CHIPS. Combine the sugar, cinnamon, shortening, and corn syrup in a bowl and stir until all is well combined. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Spread the mixture onto a well greased baking sheet lined with parchment paper into a rectangle that is about ¼ inch thick. Bake for 35 minutes or until the mixture is hot and melted together. You don't the chips to be crisp. Let cool completely. Use a pizza well or sharp knife to cut into desired pieces, Store in an air tight container until you are ready to use them.
