Cinnamon Chip Scones

Cinnamon Chip Scones 
Inspired by Panera Bread's Scones


Ingredients:

Scones:

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking poweder 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold butter, cut into tablespoon pieces
1 cup cold buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup cinnamon chips 
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
Granulated sugar for sprinkling

Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons water


Directions:  
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir to combine.  Add the butter and use a pastry blender to incorporate the butter into the flour until the butter is pea-sized.
  3. Make a well in the center of the flour and butter mixture.  Add the buttermilk and vanilla and use a spatula or large spoon to combine the dry and liquid ingredients until the dough starts to come together; don’t overmix – it’s ok if there are dry, crumbly spots here and there. Add the chips, using your hands to knead them in a bit. Turn the dough out onto a surface dusted with 1-2 tablespoons flour and combine the dough and chips together with your hands, kneading briefly, just 2-3 times, until it comes together. Pat and lightly press the dough into a long rectangle, about 15X3-inches.
  4. Cut the length of dough into triangular wedges, about 12-14 and place on the baking sheet, about an inch apart. Brush the tops with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes until just lightly golden brown and no longer doughy in the center. 
  6. Remove scones from sheet and let cool slightly on a wire rack.  Combine powdered sugar and water to create the glaze.  Using a spoon drizzle glaze over scones.  Let dry.  
Enjoy!

This sounds very good and I think I might--use to---have a bag of cinnamon chips in the pantry in my container with chocolate chips and such. TFS!
