This recipe looks AMAZING! MMM! Thanks for being here today ladies!  Take it away!Hi Chef in Training readers!  I am thrilled to be unveiling my latest recipe here at Chef in Training!  I love Nikki’s blog and am constantly checking out her delicious recipes. Every recipe of hers that we try immediately becomes a favorite!  My little guy is constantly asking me to make Nikki’s Cake Batter Pancakes!  Which would be fine if he didn’t want them for EVERY meal!  (: I’m Briana from the blog Sweet Peas & Bumblebees.  My twin sister and I LOVE to blog about all things crafty and thoroughly enjoy spending our time creating and trying new recipes!  We even have a linky party on Wednesdays where you can show off your best recipes and latest craftiness!  We totally love seeing everything you all come up with and would love if you would join us!Now for my recipe…Cinnamon Chip SconesMy Mom first made these for breakfast several years ago and they were gone within minutes!  No lie…they are that good! (:  And what’s even better?!?!  This recipe is so easy because it’s adapted to be made in the food processor.Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  In a food processor, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  When mixed, add sliced frozen butter to the flour mixture.Pulse in food processor just until it is crumbly.  {You’ll be able to see small little chunks of butter.} Stir in the cinnamon chips.  {Cinnamon chips are hard to find in my neck of the woods.  Finally I found a store that carried them.  If you too have a hard time finding them, you can always order online.  My Mom swears these are the best ones out there!}In a small bowl whisk together sour cream and egg until smooth.In your food processor, blend sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form. Do not over mix!  (If you over mix, they texture will be off.)Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7 to 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick. Sprinkle with raw sugar. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles.  Place on a cookie sheet (I didn’t use parchment paper since I had a nonstick pan), about 1 inch apart.  Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes.  They are best served warm but are also great the next day!Cinnamon Chip SconesRecipe by Sweet Peas & Bumblebees2 cups all-purpose flour1/3 cup sugar1 teaspoon baking powder1/4 teaspoon baking soda1/2 teaspoon salt8 tablespoons unsalted butter, frozen1/2 cup cinnamon chips1/2 cup sour cream1 large egg1 teaspoon raw sugarPreheat your oven to 400 degrees.In a food processor, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add sliced frozen butter to the flour mixture and pulse in food processor just until crumbly.  Stir in cinnamon chips.In a small bowl whisk together sour cream and egg until smooth.In your food processor, blend sour cream mixture into flour mixture until large dough clumps form.  Do not over mix!Place on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7 to 8-inch circle about 3/4-inch thick.  Sprinkle with raw sugar.  Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles and place on a cookie sheet (preferably lined with parchment paper), about 1 inch apart.  Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes.  Cool for 5 minutes and serve warm.Thanks for letting me share my tutorial here today!Come visit me at Sweet Peas & Bumblebees to see some of our other great recipes like these:How To Eat An Artichoke:Chewy Caramel Chunk Brownies:Tuna Rice Muffinettes:

  1. Oh, I've never had a scone (can you believe that?!). Looks delicious — and a meal in itself! I wonder if scone recipes would allow substitutions of bananas, etc instead of butter? Or would that not work because of the way scones are made? I'll have to experiment!-Carlyhttp://www.createliveblog.com
