My favorite scones are loaded with cinnamon and topped with a sweet glaze that makes them taste just like a cinnamon roll!
You guys. I cannot describe in words HOW AMAZING these scones are. The idea of cinnamon chip glazed scones came to me on a whim on a random weekday a few weeks ago and they are absolutely hands down my favorite scones in the entire universe. I’ve been going crazy with the scone baking lately. My favorite recipe is the perfect base for ANY scone concoction you can think up. I have orange scones and lemon blueberry scones on my site already and another super delicious scone recipe is coming soon, too! I’ve become an addict of the scone variety and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Normally I REALLY try to have self control when I bake, but these scones.. they are my weakness.
There’s so much cinnamon flavor going on here. First there’s cinnamon in the dough. Then we’ve got cinnamon chips folded in – which are INCREDIBLE. And before baking, the scones are topped with a crunchy cinnamon sugar coating which totally takes them over the top. These scones taste EXACTLY like a cinnamon roll and that’s exactly what I was going for! The glaze on top is just the icing on the cake, it really brings these scones that traditional cinnamon roll feel. I’ve been making these over and over, we just cannot get enough of them!
These scones would be perfect for a weekend breakfast treat or even a brunch! Or.. dessert? These are SO GOOD in the morning with a cup of coffee. Sooo good.
Whoever you choose to serve these to, they will for sure be coming back for seconds, so you may want to make a double batch!
If you enjoyed these scones, you’d also love these scone recipes!
