The Best Ever Maple Scones

4½ cups flour

½ cup brown sugar

2 tbsp. Baking powder

½ tsp salt

1½ tsp cinnamon

Pinch of nutmeg

1 cup butter, cold and cubed

¼ cup + 2 tbsp maple syrup

2 eggs

1 cup cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

For maple glaze:

1½-2 cups powdered sugar

3-4 tbsp heavy cream

2 tbsp maple syrup

½ tsp vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a large bowl, then cut butter in with a fork open (or just work it in with your fingers) until the dough resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. Add in rest of ingredients stirring just until combined. Turn out the crumbly dough into a floured surface, working it until it comes together. Make 2 balls with the dough, patting each down into a one inch thick circle slice, each circle into 8 triangular pieces.

  4. Place the scones onto a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 16 minutes or until the scones turn light brown on the edges.

  5. mix glaze ingredients, adding more cream if you would like the glaze dinner and more powdered sugar, if you would like to glaze thicker. Drizzle the icing over top or dip the tops right into the glaze.

Yields 16 medium sized scones
