Description

Yummy, moist scones perfect with a great breakfast or a little snack.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter Flavored Shortening
  • ¾ cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2 teaspoons Maple Flavoring
  • _____
  • FROSTING INGREDIENTS:
  • ½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk Or Cream
  • 2 teaspoons Maple Flavoring

Preparation

I use a KitchenAid stand mixer. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Using the dough hook, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix well. Cut butter and shortening into chunks and add to the flour mixture; blend until incorporated.

In a separate bowl, combine cream with beaten egg and maple flavoring, then add to the dry ingredients. Mix until it forms a ball – do not over mix. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Roll dough out and cut into your preferred shape—I use a star cookie cutter and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Give an inch between scones for spreading and rising. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.

While baking, in a separate bowl, combine powdered sugar, milk and flavoring. Mix well. When scones are still hot, place them on a cooling rack with a jelly roll pan underneath. Pour or brush the frosting over the top of the scones. It will melt into a lovely glaze.
