How is the weather where you are?!

Is it warm, chilly, or rainy?
How about we just pretend it’s a chilly, rainy day and we are craving to pull warm, melt-in-your mouth maple scones out of the oven? That sounds good to me.

Are you a maple lover as much as I am? You’re probably wondering if you’ve ever even tasted anything that had a distinct maple flavor. I was kinda there in the same spot a couple of weeks ago until I discovered Maple Extract.

Yes, there is such a thing. Just like Vanilla Extract, but MAPLE. And If you already knew about it, then I feel completely out of the loop in the foodie life.

Maple Oat Mini Scones with Maple Drizzle

Servings 16 scones

Ingredients

Scones:

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 chopped regular oats
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 in sticks cold Butter chopped into pieces
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp maple extract

Maple Drizzle:

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp brewed coffee
  • 2 tsp maple extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, ground oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Add butter pieces and use a pastry cutter to work the butter and dry ingredients together until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Whisk together the cream, egg, and 1 teaspoon maple extract. Pour into flour mixture, stirring gently, until it all comes together. (You should be able to form mixture together, if it is too dry add a couple more tablespoons of heavy cream and mix.)
  5. Turn dough on top cutting board/floured surface and form dough with hands into 2 separate 4-5-inch circles. 3/4-inches thick.
  6. (Like pictures abovwhen circles are formed cut each into 8 equal scone wedges. Place parchment paper on sheet pan and place wedges evenly apart leaving a little room for them to rise without touching.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until they are poofy and slightly golden! You don't want to over bake. 🙂 Let cool for 8-10 minutes.
  8. Mix all of your maple drizzle ingredients in a medium-large bowl. Make sure drizzle is thick but still pourable. Drizzle away on top of cooled scones and sprinkle some oats on top!! Enjoy!
