Recipe Time

Cinnamon Chip Scones 
      These are famous with my friends and family...not your average dry, crusty scone...They're moist and    delicious...and perfect to share after a little morning romp in the hay.


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Hershey's Cinnamon Chips 


  1. In a small bowl, blend the sour cream and baking soda, and set aside.  This is crucial for moist scones! 
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt. Cut in the butter. Stir the sour cream mixture and egg into the flour mixture until just moistened. 
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly. Roll or pat dough into a 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick rectangle. Sprinkle the cinnamon chips evenly over dough.  Roll or fold up.  Roll out again then cut into 12 wedges (or use a round biscuit cutter for smaller scones), and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  
  5. Bake 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown on the bottom.  Size determines if you add or subtract to the baking time.  Just watch closely as they brown on bottom.
