Cinnamon Chip Scones

One of our Friday morning friends, Megan, loves cinnamon chips. She hoards them, in fact. She also loves scones. I recently saw a recipe on a food blog I read and thought it would be a perfect recipe to try. It was super simple to throw together. Nothing too weird or complicated. And to be honest, there wasn’t a thing about the recipe I’d change. The only thing we did differently (read: because we were lazy) was to make drop scones instead of patting the dough into round discs and cutting them into triangles. They were simple and addicting. We hope you enjoy them too!
