These Cinnamon Chip Scones go great with coffee during the holiday season.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon.
Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in baking chips.
Whisk 1/2 c. cream and egg together; stir unto crumb mixture just until moistened.
Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead 10 times. Pat into a 9-in. circle. Cut into 12 wedges and place on greased baking sheet.
Brush with remaining cream. Combine coarse sugar and remaining cinnamon; sprinkle over tops.
Bake at 400 F for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
[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.
