I really love fresh, warm scones. If you’ve never made them at home, now is your chance. You won’t regret it. It’s a completely different experience than buying them at your local coffee shop.
I was happy to receive two requests for maple scones from the comments in my recent Giveaway. I didn’t already have a maple scone recipe, so I was excited to take this on. It took me a couple of tries and some online research (to uncover what ingredients Starbucks puts in their maple scones), but I am quite pleased with the outcome. The scones have great texture from the pecans and oats, but are tender and slightly sweet. You get the real maple effect in the glaze, so whatever you do, don’t skip the glaze. It really brings the whole thing together. Put the kettle on and make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy these with a friend.
