Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Scones

Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Scones
One day this week when I picked my son up from school he had a plate full of cookies that he made in FACS (Family and Consumer Science a.k.a. Home Ec.).  He was so proud of them!  My first question to him was, “Do you want to take pictures and blog about your cookies?”  I was a little disappointed that he nixed that idea.  Oh well.  So instead I bring you Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Scones.

Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Scones
I don’t know why I don’t make scones more often.  They are so easy, so yummy, and there are so many wonderful scone recipes to try.  I had not tried this recipe before, but it is now on my list of favorites.  My husband in particular loved these.  He had one for breakfast.  And lunch.  The scones did turn out more muffin-y than biscuit-y, if that makes any sense.  What I mean is that they were not as light and flaky (like a biscuit) as other scones I have made.  The texture was a little more dense, yet still moist--almost like a muffin.  This could be because of the sour cream, or because I over-mixed my dough.  In any case—yummy!

Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Scones
Perfect with a cup of coffee--cinnamon flavored scones filled with miniature chocolate chips and drizzled with chocolate.

Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, cold and cut into chunks
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup + extra for melting (optional) miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 375°F.2. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.3. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.4. In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs, sour cream, and vanilla.5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until a soft dough forms; stir in chocolate chips.6. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough until smooth--about 1 minutes.7. Form dough into (2) 6-inch circles and cut each circle into 6 wedges for a total of 12 wedges.8. Place wedges onto a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.9. Cool slightly on a wire rack; if desired melt additional chocolate chips and drizzle over scones.

  3. I always tell my students if you're making a cake for people but it falls then call it a torte. No one will know the difference except you, and as long as you have good ingredients it should still taste wonderful. I think your scones look fantastic and obviously your husband thinks so as well.

    By the way I like how you've changed your blog. It's very nice. I'd like to do some updating as well.

  22. Love your yummy scone, Jill. So unusual with the chocolate drizzle...but then I'm such a lover of chocolate I would probably drizzle some on there, myself. Would love to have one right now with my morning coffee!
