There is nothing that says “welcome” like freshly baked goods- warm out of the oven. These cinnamon chip scones are no exception. They are buttery, dense, simple , and ready in 20 mins to dip in a cup of piping hot coffee .   I have kept it a staple for gatherings, bible studies, and meal ministries. You’re going to love it, I just know it….

Sift together dry ingredients, then cut in shortening and butter. I simply take two knives and literally do “just that”, I cut it in. {You will get a crumbly texture during this step}.

In a small bowl beat egg with heavy cream {You  may use half and half or milk- your texture will change slightly}.


You will have a thicker cookie -dough- batter- like consistency.

You can add whatever you wish at this point….My choice? Cinnamon chips. Other options are blueberries, raisins, chocolate chips, cranberries, or even savory ingredients such as ham and grated cheese. For a sweet scone you may wish to use an egg wash with a coarse sugar topping. This recipe is so versatile!


Sprinkle flour on a flat surface and coat your hands. Take scone dough and shape into a ball, then flatten into a disk.

Cut into 8 slices. Make a cross, then another cross in the other direction…pizza cutters work great doing this.

Place on a baking sheet {I use foil for easy clean-up}.

Bake in a 375 oven for 15 mins until golden in color. Oooo…I wish you could smell these right now!

So rich and buttery…the cinnamon chips melt leaving bursts of flavor throughout the scones.

  1. Those look super yummy, and I have had cravings for all things cinnamon lately. I am thinking I need to make these as a special treat for myself before my maternity leave comes to an end.

  2. Hi,

    Scones have always been something I love to make.. However, your recipe says 4T butter and 2 T shortening.. What does 4 T and 2 T mean please??

    I tend to use self raising flour rather than a raising agent.. I do love the idea of cinnamon chips too.. Will certainly try this on my house mates. I live in a Christian community house.. They will love them I am sure..

    Thank you in anticipation.. God bless you..


  3. I made this today and they came out great! I didn’t have shortening so I just used 2 extra tablespoons of butter. Also, I did chocolate chips.

  4. Thank you for such a simple and delicious recipe! I made this tonight, and I am in love with how easy it was! I have never used shortening, so I subbed the same amount of softened coconut oil, and they turned out great! This batch will definitely be for my family, but I plan to make a batch for the kids’ teachers sometime soon.
