Cinnamon Bun Scones

When I was little, my mom used to make these frequently on the weekends for breakfast. I remember coming down the stairs and smelling the amazing cinnamon scent throughout the kitchen. I would get so excited when I realized it was coming from these scones, and I would quickly devour 2 or 3!! Not only are they amazing straight from the oven, but they are still great the next day! Whether making these for a weekend breakfast, a get together with friends, or snack, I bet you love these as much as my family does!!
