Cinnamon Chip Scones:
Cinnamon Chips can be hard to find in the store when it isn’t a holiday season. When my Grammy was here at Christmas time she and I hit the store and stocked up on these. They are so yummy and a nice little surprise in baking.
Scones are so much easier to make than I ever would have thought. They really are. And if you find a great recipe like this one, they will be moist and perfect with a morning cup of coffee.
