Chippy Cinnamon Scones

I love baking and am crazy about cinnamon rolls, but they take a lot of time to put together. I made this recipe to satisfy the craving!—Camilla Saulsbury, Nacogdoches, Texas

    I made these substituting gluten-free flour which changes the consistency slightly but they were still very delicious! The only thing I would change the next time I make them is to thicken up the icing drizzle. It was a bit watery so it didn't stay on the scones very well.

    Delicious! I had to use a little more cream than called for to make the dough stick together, but they were very tasty.

    I kept looking for some butter in the ingredient list! I thought the mix was quite dry and ended up adding more cream so it would hold together. My husband and I both liked the taste of the scones, but I thought they were also a bit dry. As another reviewer mentioned, the next time I will cut them into eight pieces rather than six as they are quite large. I might try adding a little butter next time.

    I agree with Franwinba 100%. Seriously--how often are you going to eat them? Everything in moderation. I love scones, and these are tasty. The only change I made was to use a vanilla glaze instead of cream cheese--just personal preference. Try these!

    Cream cheese frosting was very good would make the frosting again. Scones were a little bland. Cut in to 8 rather than 6 for a slightly smaller scone.

    This was very good. I live alone and ate the whole thing. I get so tired of people complaining about the calories!! If it is too much for your diet, don't eat it. People go to a lot of trouble to supply us with good recipes. Try saying thank you instead of complaining.
