I don't know about you, but baking is a big stress reliever for me. Last Thursday I was having a rough day at work, so that night I decided to do some baking. I've been on a scone kick ever since I made the cherry almond scones from this post. About a week prior, I was thinking about other flavor scones I could make and I stumbled upon this cinnamon chip scone recipe. I was planning to make them that weekend, but cinnamon chips were nowhere to be found! I searched several grocery stores and could not find them so I ended up buying them off of Amazon. Thank goodness for Amazon Prime! :) I ordered the Hershey's brand cinnamon chips which came with 6 10oz bags, so I should be stocked for awhile.
That Thursday after work I decided to make a batch of the cherry scones and a batch of the cinnamon scones to bring into work on Friday. Since I've made the cherry scones a few times I felt comfortable bringing them into work, but the cinnamon scones were a first for me so I was a little apprehensive to share them with co-workers. Dave tested them out and of course loved them. I had a little piece and thought they were pretty good. I think next time I won't use the whole 10oz bag of cinnamon chips it called for because it was hard to keep the dough together with so many chips. So, Friday morning I brought the scones into work, being a little skeptical of what people were going to think. I love to bake but I'm a tough critic on myself so I get very nervous sharing things with other people because I'm afraid they might not like my baking. I got nothing but positive responses and people asking for my recipes. I don't know if they were just being nice or if they truly liked them; I like to think it is the latter.
