Maple Scones


Maple Scones
Originally uploaded by wayfarer.
As promised, if you want a recipe, i'll post it. Here it is (i didn't put walnuts or pecans in mine and think i should have so have added that to the recipe):

Dough:

1 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening or butter
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts (or pecans) - toast them to draw out the oil/flavor
1/2 cup milk
1/3 -1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring or extract

Maple Frosting:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1-2 teaspoons half-and-half, cream, milk, whatever you use (just add a little at a time to get the frosting the right texture...i wanted mine a litle runny so it wouldn't tear the scones when put on)
1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring or extract

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the shortening/butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. This takes a while... Stir in walnuts or pecans. In a separate bowl (or directly into it if you want), add in milk, syrup, and maple flavoring. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until you've formed a dry soft dough.

Flour your work surface. Take the dough and pat it into a 7 inch circle almost an inch think. Transfer to a lightly greased cookie sheet. Use a pizza wheel (or a knife i guess) and divide the circle of dough into eight wedges. Gently separate the wedges so that they're almost touching in the center, but are spaced about an inch apart at the edges. Bake for 15-18 minutes at 400 degrees, or until golden brown. Let them cool a bit so they don't tear when frosting.

Combine all frosting ingredients and mix until creamy. Gently frost the tops of scones with the maple frosting.

We didn't care for them fresh out of the oven but once they sat, they were goooooood.
