Share some sweetness with family and friends this holiday season with these amazing Maple Cinnamon Chip and Golden Raisin Scones.
I love scones. I’ve made a lot of them in the past, but the flavor combination of these is the best I’ve ever eaten.
They actually make me want to eat breakfast and you know I don’t usually do that!
But, the combination of maple, cinnamon and golden raisins is so light and sweet that I could eat them all day long.
They’re perfect for breakfast any day of the week, but why not share some of the sweetness this holiday season?
Add these Maple Cinnamon Chip & Golden Raisin Scones to your Thanksgiving, Christmas or even New Years menu for a quick, easy and delicious breakfast to share with family and friends.
Here’s the recipe –

- 11 x 17 baking sheet
- Large bowl
- Pastry cutter (or forks)
- Small bowl
- Sharp knife
- 3 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 5 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 12 tablespoons cold butter
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup cinnamon chips
- 1/2 cup golden raisins
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- Maple Glaze:
- 1 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1/4 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lightly grease an 11 inch by 17 inch baking sheet.
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter (or two forks) until the mixture resembles a crumby dough.
Combine the beaten egg, milk and vanilla in a separate bowl. Stir into the dough mixture, slowly.
Place the dough onto a floured surface. Pour the cinnamon chips and golden raisins onto the dough.
Knead the cinnamon chips and golden raisins into the dough.
Pat the dough into a large rectangle. Cut the dough into 4 strips, then 12 squares. Cut each square in half, diagonally.
Place the scones onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are lightly brown. Cool on wire racks.
Combine the confectioners sugar, maple syrup and milk in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth.
Drizzle maple glaze over cooled Cinnamon Chip and Golden Raisin Scones.
