Maple Oat Scones

Maple Oat Scones
Yield: About 30-2” scones

For the Scones:

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour (or substitute more all-purpose flour)
1 cup quick-cooking oats, plus additional for sprinkling
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pound cold butter, diced
1/2 cup cold buttermilk or sour milk
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
4 extra-large eggs

For the Glaze:

3 cups confectioners’ sugar
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons milk*

Preheat the oven to 375F. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the flours, oats, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Blend the cold butter in at the lowest speed and mix until the butter is in pea-size pieces. Combine the buttermilk, maple syrup and eggs and add quickly to the flour-and-butter mixture. Mix until just blended. The dough will be a little sticky. Flour your hands, clean work surface, and a rolling pin and roll the dough ¾” thick. Cut into 2-inch rounds with a plain or fluted cutter and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the tops are crisp and the insides are done. To make the glaze, combine the confectioners’ sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, and milk. When the scones are done, cool for 30 minutes and brush the top of each scone with about 2 tablespoons of the glaze. Sprinkle some uncooked oats on the top, for garnish.

*Amount of milk will vary depending on room temperature. The glaze should be very thick and just spreadable. If you make it too thin, just add a little more confectioner’s sugar.

  1. These look awesome! I just found an Etsy store that sells Handmade Maple Products, — I am going to try these with their Maple Sugar instead of the Regular Sugar, and then use their Maple Cream (100% maple syrup but creamy) in the glaze instead of the regular Maple Syrup! These remind me of the Long John Doughnuts I would get as a kid at the local doughnut shop each Saturday with my Dad♥I would get the Maple Ones! YUM! Thanks for the recipe!
