Before we dive into these delectable, perfect scones, a few items of business:

1) If you are subscribed to my email list but haven’t been receiving emails, make sure to check your junk folder; I’ve heard from several of you over the last few weeks that the email updates have been showing up in spam/junk folders instead of inboxes. I’m tweaking things on my end to make sure those overaggressive spam filters leave me and my emails alone, but until then, make sure you aren’t missing out on any new posts!

2) I posted a quick and simple Mother’s Day/Spring gift guide on Friday, so take a look if you need some gift-giving inspiration!

(This is the one I have and highly recommend it.) I include weight measures for most of my baking recipes and rarely use a recipe online or in cookbooks that doesn’t include weights, because, call me crazy, I kind of like it when recipes turn out perfectly the first time, don’t you" If you are morally opposed to using a kitchen scale, please, please, please read this post on how to measure flour accurately. Ok, phew! Rant over (for now).

Today’s scone recipe (that I should be talking about instead of lecturing about scales) is infinitely adaptable. If you don’t have cinnamon chips, use mini chocolate chips! Or play around with other flavors – maybe lemon or orange zest with an accompanying glaze" The base buttermilk recipe is so fantastic, it deserves to be put to work. But I will say that the cinnamon version is absolutely magical. The little cinnamon morsels soften just a bit while baki...
