Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp coffee grounds
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled
  • 1/3 cup cinnamon chips, plus more for topping if desired
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp heavy cream, plus more for brushing
  • 2 large eggs

Coffee Glaze

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tsp strongly brewed coffee
  • Pinch salt

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, coffee grounds, and salt.
  • Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or fork (or your hands), until pea-size pieces form with some larger chunks remaining. 
  • Stir in cinnamon chips.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together cream and eggs. Using a spatula, fold the cream/egg mixture into the dry mixture until just combined.
  • On a lightly floured surface, gently knead the dough a few times. Then using your hands, form a circle about 3/4" thick. Slice dough into 8 triangles and place on prepared baking sheet. Brush scones lightly with heavy cream.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes, until scones are just turning golden around edges.
  • Let scones cool a bit before drizzling with coffee glaze and sprinkling with additional cinnamon chips.

Coffee Glaze

  • Put confectioners' sugar in a medium bowl. Add coffee and salt and whisk together until combined. Add more coffee if you'd like a thinner glaze.
