Maple Scones

Sweet and simple, these maple scones are prefect for breakfast, brunch, or an after-school snack.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp milk , or 5% cream
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup large flake oats
  • 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter , cubed
  • 1 egg , lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, egg and milk.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder and salt until well blended.
  • Cut cold butter into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter or your fingertips (pinch each large piece of butter — the heat from your fingers is enough to break it into smaller pieces). Keep working until each piece of butter is the size of a small pea.
  • Add the syrup mixture to the flour mixture. Stir with a fork until it comes together. Add more milk if necessary, 1 tsp at a time. The dough will be slightly sticky. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat out to a 6 1/2-in. square, 1 in. thick. Cut into traditional diamond shapes or use a glass to make circles.
  • Place the scones on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush each scone with a bit of whisked egg. Sprinkle the tops with pinches of sugar. Bake until golden, 11 to 12 min.
