  • Dough
  • 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup butter 12 Tablespoons
  • 1 cup of milk plus 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar buttermilk substitute
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup of cinnamon chips
  • Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons milk

  • Scones
  • Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Once that’s mixed, cut in the butter till the mixture is crumbly like a pie crust.
  • Then mix together the milk, lemon juice and vanilla.
  • Stir the wet mixture into the dry, and then stir in the chips.
  • After a few stirs, put the mixture out onto a floured surface, and gently knead for just a minute, till everything comes together.
  • Divide up the dough into two equal size balls.
  • Then roll the balls into two 7 to 8 inch circles (around an inch thick), and cut into 6 or more wedges each. Place them onto a lightly greased baking sheet, or on parchment paper (on a baking sheet). Stick in freezer for 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for around 20 minutes or till golden.
  • Glaze
  • Stir together the powdered sugar, milk, vanilla and salt, and then using a pastry brush, thoroughly coat the fresh out of the oven scones.
