Cinnamon-Chip Scones // TriedandTastyIf you’re looking for a great holiday breakfast or brunch idea, look no further. These scones are perfect for the holidays. The cinnamon chips are the perfect accent to this quick bread. When I saw these, they immediately reminded me of something scrumptious you would fund at your local coffee shop. Just imagine these with a nice warm drink; a cup of hot cocoa or coffee! When it comes to the holidays I like to make breakfast a little more special than any other day, this would be a great idea for Christmas week. I’m planning on making Traditional Leige Waffles this year for Christmas morning, so I’ll have to try and squeeze these in on another day during Christmas week!

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
*You don't have to use whole wheat pastry flour, you can use all-purpose flour for the entire recipe if you like. I also chose to drizzle them with some melted white chocolate, but they are fabulous without - so you decide if you want the extra bit of sweetness or not.

    I enjoyed the article and suppose you’ve got more
    such stuff? If so, so please note it as it’s somewhat uncommon for
    me in the current instant, and not for me personally,
    that is my view.
