Cinnamon Chip Scones

For some reason, I really like making breakfast foods.  I just don’t like eating them.  I am a cereal gal all the way.  I’ve had this recipe for a while, but for some reason I had not been able to find cinnamon chips at the grocery store anymore.  Luckily, my mom had an extra bag in her pantry that she gave to me.

This was my second time making scones (see Blueberry Scones).  These were so much easier to make, and turned out so much cuter, thanks to this awesome cast-iron scone pan that I bought.  I really liked the uniformity of them and how nice and nice and thick they were.

Zack took them to work and they were all eaten.  I hope they enjoyed them, because I don’t know when I will be able to find cinnamon chips again!
