Cranberry Curd and Cinnamon Chips

The lovely turquoise 'Rosina' is pulled from the china cabinet today for tea. But what do cranberry curd and cinnamon chips have in common you ask? Both gifts, and yummy ones too.
The cranberry curd by Harry and David was part of a Christmas present from our daughter and it is a thick spread of tart goodness to have on scones instead of lemon curd for a change.
I've read about my American blogging sisters saying how much they liked baking with cinnamon chips and I took hubby with me to look in Target and Walmart but they were nowhere to be found. They would sell well in our Canadian grocery stores - hint, hint!
Not too long ago a package arrived in the mail with a bag of the cinnamon chips for me to bake my heart out with! There were a couple of tea bags included and Bigelow's salted caramel made a decadent cup of tea. Thank you my friend Kitty for thinking of me and generously sending a much appreciated bag of cinnamon chips my way and a couple of new teas to try. Kitty is a great baker and I've already adopted a couple of her recipes for my own.
The cinnamon chips were delicious in scones and my hubby loves the new addition too!
This batch quickly disappeared and we're into another. Have you tried cinnamon chips in any of your recipes? I'll be looking for these when we are in Florida next month to bring home a few bags.
Linking with the following tea gatherings:

  1. What a beautiful and delicious post, and an exquisite tea cup!
    I hadn't ever seen cinnamon chips before, but I can imagine they must be lovely.
    Your scones look really tasty! :)

  2. Hi Trish,
    I noticed you expressed your desire for cinnamon chips. I live in Canada on the Westcoast, BC. Our Target, Wal Mart & local grocery stores all carry cinnamon chips (as they also have French on them) one of Canada's requirements. I might suggest you approach the managers of your local stores to get the product circulating that side of the country. They should be able to put it on their list, providing they see the need to order it for the public. Good Luck in getting them,yes, they are good.
    Blessings for a great day!

  3. The teacup is a beauty, Judith! I'm so glad you enjoyed the cinnamon chips in your scones. The cranberry curd sounds wonderful as well. Wish I could share tea and a scone with you.

  4. Judith, my apologies for calling you Trish. I best focus on one task at a time, however, the rest of my message is correct in getting cinnamon chips in Canada. Again I am sorry & Best of luck in eating them.

  5. That cranberry curd looks delicious and since I stopped baking I have not heard of the cinnamon chips...I bet they are wonderful in those scones.

  8. Cinnamon chips must be something fairly new for so many to not heard of it yet. But, it is something I will look for when I shop. Sounds wonderful. I love the tea cup you have shared with your scones today. So very pretty.

  10. Hi Judith, Your teacup is beautiful! Precious. I like the florals as it makes me think of spring. ;)
    I have never tried cinnamon chips or cranberry curd. On your recommendation, I'm going to look for them. Safe travels. :)
    Hugs, Beth

  12. Such a beautiful turquoise violet cup and saucer. Cinnamon chips sounds wonderful as an addition to scones but also the cranberry curd must be delicious, even better than lemon curd I think.

  13. What a gorgeous teacup! I love the turqoise colour and the violets, naturally!

    Wishing you safe travels to Florida! Apparently, there's another storm heading our way tomorrow afternoon which is expected to bring 15-20 cm of the fluffy white stuff (*snow day dance*).

  15. Your scones are fantastic! They are so tall! How lovely to have received the cinnamon chips, and that they were so good when you did! xx

  16. Oh my word what a GORGEOUS tea cup - it is stunning. Your scones look so so yummy, they really puffed up. Mine are always too flat. I've tried everything, too.

    As for your gifts from Kitty, is she the sweetest thing or what? I received the most thoughtful surprise in today's mail too that I cannot wait to post about. There is really nothing better than a dear blog sister/friend. They are little happy bomb miracles for sure. Hugs. ♥

  17. PS haha I just now noticed that Amy in the comment above me mentioned how high your scones are too. How on earth do you do that? It's impressive, Judith! Another big hug for you because you make awesome scones. Hee hee.

  18. I've not heard of cinnamon chips, but I love that idea! They look delicious melting in your scones. And the mention of cranberry curd makes my mouth water. What a pretty tea cup you have shared. Violets always remind me of my mom ;)

  19. Hello Judith
    Your 'Rosina' tea cup is very sweet.
    Violets will always have a place in my heart and I have a carpet of violets in a little rockery corner of my garden every Spring.
    I often see foodie items on Kitty's blog too and wish I could get them here too - we import more of those things from the UK and Europe it seems.
    Are you caught up in the superbowl festivities Judith?
    Hugs

  20. I've never seen cinnamon chips, but if I find them, I will use them in my next batch of scones! I've never had cranberry curd either. I only know how to make lemon curd. I need to get out more!! lol.
    Your violet tea setting is beautiful, as always, Judith.
    Happy Sunday to you, dear friend.

  21. Hi Judith! Your scones look terrific! Ummm, cinnamon and cranberry curd sounds so yummy. Your teacup is very pretty. I'm seeing it on the first day of February, so I'm really enjoying the violets. I hope the rest of your weekend is terrific!

  22. I've never heard of cinnamon chips, so I've never thought of using them. Sound interesting! And cranberry curd--too bad I can't come visit and give it all a try!

  23. Have a wonderful time in the warmth, Judith - and enjoy those cinnamon chips!
    0 here like it that I've seen :) although my imagination is certainly enjoying those scones with a cuppa!

  24. I so wish I could jump into your suitcase and get smuggled across the border to warm sunny FL, Judith. How wonderful to get away from all this white stuff. Your teacup is gorgeous! I love the colour and the sweet violets inside the cup. Cranberry curd sounds lovely and would be a nice change from the lemon. I have not used cinnamon chips because I have never seen them around here. Hope you can find lots to bring back home with you. Your scones look delicious. Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea today. It's always a delight to have you!

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  30. What a pretty violet tea cup! :) Your biscuits look delicious. What a nice day for tea!

  31. I guess I am behind things because I have never baked with cinnamon chips either. Your cup and saucer are lovely and I hope you are having a great time in Florida in the sun. Everyone keeps talking about how many days there are to spring but that is a bit of a joke in Colorado because that means how many days till snow!

  32. The cherry curd sounds positively delicious! I am a big fan of lemon and lime curds. Hmm, I wonder if it can be purchased from another source. I haven't tried the cinnamon chips. There are chocolate chips languishing in the pantry that I need to use up first!

  33. What a lovely teacup, and those scones look so yummy. I think I would love cranberry curd, as I do like tart and sweet together. And cinnamon chips, well, there would just be so many uses for those!!

  34. Love your pretty teacup! The cranberry curd does sound delicious. I haven't tried the cinnamon chips, but know that I would love them, because I love cinnamon toast. Kitty is so sweet!
