Cinnamon Chip Scones
recipe courtesy of The Pioneer Woman
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
5 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter
¾ cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup cinnamon chips
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 ½ teaspoons heavy cream
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/3 cup sugar, ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, and baking powder. Cut butter into pieces, then cut into dry ingredients with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cinnamon chips.
Mix together cream, egg, and vanilla extract. Pour into flour butter mixture, stirring gently with a fork to combine.
Turn onto work surface (mixture will be very crumbly and falling apart.) Gently press together on the sides as you flatten (or roll, with a rolling pin) the top. Form either into a large circle or a large rectangle. Mix together topping ingredients, stirring with a fork. Sprinkle over the top of the dough, lightly pressing.
Cut into wedges or triangles. Transfer to a cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving.
