Sweet, warm, delicious – perfect for an autumn morning!
Not sure if it’s my English/Irish heritage, but just the sound of Maple Pecan scones sound absolutely dreamy… and hey, it’s sort of an invitation to enjoy breakfast in bed one morning for yourself and/or for your loved one (hopefully ;-).
These perfectly moist yet delicately flaky scones are a so easy to make. You can also make them the night before and pop them into a heated oven in the morning, followed by the glaze. It’s simple little pleasures like these, that make morning-time extra special
Maple Pecan Scones
Here are the INGREDIENTS you’ll need:
Here are the easy DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, whisk together cream, vanilla and 4 Tbsp maple syrup. Set aside.
In a food processor, pulse the flour baking powder, sugar and salt together until incorporated.
Add diced butter, pulse again until a course meal forms. About 10-12 pulses.
Transfer the flour mixture into a large bowl and add in pecans, and blend together.
Pour in cream and mix until sticky dough forms.
On a floured surface, knead the dough a few times until a ball forms, mold into round disk so that you can cut the disk into 6 or 8 wedges, depending on how large you want your scones to be.
Place wedges onto prepared sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Transfer scones to wire rack to cool completely.
While scones are cooling, whisk together the powdered sugar and 3 Tbsp maple syrup for glaze.
Drizzle glaze onto scones and allow to dry before serving. About 10 minutes.
What a great morning!
