Coffeehouse Scones

1 ounce milk chocolate

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 3⁄4 cups flour

2 1⁄4 teaspoons baking powder

1⁄4 cup sugar, plus a little

1⁄4 teaspoon salt

1 1⁄4 cups heavy cream

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1. Pipe: Zap chocolate just to melt, about 1 minute. Stir in cinnamon. Scrape into a zip-top bag. Snip off one corner and pipe mini cinnamon chips onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Let set, 10 minutes (or slide into the freezer for 5 minutes).

2. Mix: Whisk together flour, baking power, 1⁄4 cup sugar, and salt. Pour in cream, stirring with a fork, once or twice. Slide in cinnamon chips. Mix a few more turns of the fork, just until dough comes together. Turn out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Pat into a disk, about 8 inches in diameter and 3⁄4-inch high.

3. Brush: Use a long, heavy knife dipped in flour to slice disk into 12 wedges. Separate wedges about 1⁄2 inch from each other. Brush tops with melted butter. Sprinkle with a little sugar.

4. Bake: Slide into a 400-degree oven and bake until tops turn golden and scones are set, about 16 minutes. Good warm or cooled.
