Coffee Cinnamon Scones

Sharing is caring!

This recipe for Coffee Cinnamon Scones will become your new favorite scone recipe.

My love of scones has increased greatly since I made this Coffee Cinnamon Scones recipe. I have made Lemon Lavender scones which are perfect for spring or summer.

We have made mini strawberry scones for a catering gig I did.

We made pumpkin scones for fall and we have also made chocolate chip scones. I am here to tell you that none of those scones compare to these double-decker coffee cinnamon scones we just made.

How to Make Coffee Cinnamon Scones

What makes this recipe so fabulous is the Frosted Cinnamon Bun Coffee we used from Door County Coffee to make these. Of course, you can use any coffee you have on hand, but trust me when I say that this coffee puts these over the top.

To make the filling for these scones you are going to need —

  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp finely ground coffee
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp cold butter, cut into small pieces

The scones are going to be made like a normal scone, using simple pantry ingredients. The one ingredient that makes these scones so moist and delicious is the vanilla yogurt.

Once you get your scone dough mixed up, divide it into two and make the first round.

Top with the cinnamon coffee mixture. For our sugar, we used Dixie Crystals.

Then, take the other half of the dough and roll it out to match the first circle and place it on top of the cinnamon mixture.

Then slice into 8 triangles and then bake in the oven until golden brown. Once it comes out, you will be making a delicious coffee bean glaze to drizzle over the scones.

These are by far the best scones I have ever made and I cannot wait to make them again because these did not last long at all around my family.
