Guess what I got my hands on last weekend?
CINNAMON CHIPS. Yep, they exist.
To my knowledge, these little puppies are not sold in Colorado. But, my sweet cousin who lives in Fort Worth brought me two (two!!) bags of them on her visit up here this weekend. She wouldn’t even let me pay her for them.
If you’ve never had them…you need to go on the hunt. Call your relatives and friends across the country and beg them to scour their grocery stores for bags of Hershey’s cinnamon chips…and then tell them to send them my way. Kidding. I have two (almost full) bags in my pantry right now.
You should eat them yourself.
Preferably in inside of a nice flakey scone.
Cinnamon Chip Scones
- 1 C whole wheat flour
- 1 C all purpose flour
- 1 T baking powder
- 1/3 C sugar
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/2 C butter
- 3/4 C milk
- 1/2 C – 1 C cinnamon chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together the dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar – together in a large bowl.
Cut the butter into little cubes, then add to the dry mixture, mushing it around with your fingers until it’s all incorporated and a coarse meal is formed.
Add the milk and the cinnamon chips and stir until a ball of dough forms.
On a floured surface, pat the dough into a disk, then cut into eight triangles like a pizza.
Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 – 20 minutes.
