one day i was feeling inspired to bake. i had cinnamon chips on hand, random, i know, and i googled cinnamon chip scones. i thought i could try to bake the scones i enjoy at starbucks without spending the $$$ at starbucks. i found the above recipe and decided to try it. they came out warm, sweet and crumbly. a delicious treat on a rainy sunday afternoon curled up on the couch reading... one thing starbucks had, but i did not add was the icing... something caleb didn't fail to point out ;) oh well... maybe next time. hope you enjoy this recipe as breakfast, dessert or a mid-afternoon snack ;)
