Cinnamon Scones - The Southern Lady Cooks

These delicious cinnamon scones are incredible! My family loves cinnamon and these are definitely a keeper. They are delicious with coffee and keep well too. These delicious scones would be perfect for any holiday morning. Plus the house will smell amazing. I couldn’t wait to have one, they are just that good.

Cinnamon Scones Ingredients Needed:

All-purpose flour

White granulated sugar

Baking powder

Baking soda


Ground cinnamon



Package of cinnamon baking chips or about 1 1/4 cups

The cinnamon chips we buy are made by Hershey’s and we find them at Walmart. They are so good, but sometimes hard to find. On the rare occasion we can’t find them, we just make our own. Click here for our cinnamon chips recipe. I think your family will love these scones and they actually keep well. Just keep them in an air tight container and heat them up for 15 seconds or so in the microwave.

  1. Excellent 1st attempt at scones. Delicious recipe, please note they stuck to the baking sheet. Recommend to use parchment next time.
    Also I would chill a little before baking so they keep their shape.
    My 8 turned out very big.
    How big should be circle be? That tip would be helpful.
    Recommend this recipe with a little mor instructions, they’re delicious.
    Also found the cinnamon chips difficult to find.
    Hershey makes them and they’re delicious.4 stars

  2. These were so good!! Loved them fresh out of the oven but also froze half of them and they reheated really well. Would definitely make again!5 stars
