Cinnamon Chip Scones




3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
1 cup buttermilk
1 package (10 ounces) cinnamon baking chips
2 tablespoons butter, melted


In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened. Fold in chips.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 10-12 times or until dough is no longer sticky. Divide in half; gently pat or roll each portion into a 7-in. circle. Brush with butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar.
Cut each circle into six wedges. Separate wedges and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.

  1. This picture looks nothing like a cinnamon chip scone from Panera bread!

  2. Yea, but Marilyn the main point of the recipe is in the tasting and it tastes just like the ones in the Panera Bakery that we buy. Looks are most generally very deceiving.

  3. That scone looks great and it does look like the ones I used to be able to get at Panera in Austin, Texas-- with sugar on the outside (no donut glaze), thick and square. But they changed their recipe in 2013 or 2014. I am looking forward to making these.

  5. Did this recipe, and it was very close to the old Paneras scone recipe. My husband and son were impressed!

  6. Panera screwed up by adding the glaze on the scones. I used to get one almost every time I went there for breakfast, which was at least 4 times a week. I have never bought one since they added the glaze.

  7. I don't know why they ever decided to add that glaze. It completely ruined the cinnamon chip scones...I too used to love them and now I never get them. Somebody should let Panera know!!!
