Maple Oat Scones

These scones are full of delicious maple flavor.

Makes 8 scones

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

2 teaspoons baking powder

10 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces

1/3 cup cream or milk

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 egg, lightly beaten

For the glaze:

1 tablespoon butter, melted

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon cream or milk

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, and baking powder.

Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until the butter is the size of peas.

Add the cream, maple syrup, and egg and mix with a wooden spoon until combined.

There are 2 ways to do the next step:

1. Turn the dough onto an unfloured work surface and form into an 8 inch round about 1 inch thick.

Cut into 8 wedges and place on an ungreased baking sheet.

OR

2. Divide the dough between the 8 sections of a scone pan.

Place 3 pecan halves on the top of each scone.

Bake for 15-18 minutes.

Remove to a cooling rack placed over a sheet of wax paper.

To make the glaze, combine the butter, maple syrup, milk or cream, and sugar in a small bowl and whisk until it is lump free.

Drizzle the cooled scones with the glaze.
