Hope you are all having fun!
Cinnamon Chip Scones:
2 cups flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cinnamon chips
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 1/4 -1 1/2 cup whipping cream
mix all ingredients with a spoon. Dust your hands with flour and knead the mixture 4-5 times. pat out into a nice fat circle on a cookie sheet. cut into pie shapes while keeping the circle intact. It will look like a wheel. If you have a scone pan then just pinch off pieces of the dough and place them in the pan. Brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
Bake at 425 for 15 minutes or until golden.
You are just going to love these with a hot cup of coffee or tea!
