About the Recipe



-2 ¾ cups all purpose-flour

-1/3 cup brown sugar

-1 Tbsp baking powder

-1/2 tsp baking soda

-3/4 tsp salt

-1/2 cup cold unslated butter, cut into pieces

-1/2 cup chopped walnuts

-3/4 cup cold buttermilk

-1/4 cup maple syrup

-1 large egg

-1 Tbsp vanilla extract

-1 Tbsp heavy cream


-1 cup powdered sugar

-2 Tbsp maple syrup

-2 Tbsp milk or cream

-1/2 tsp vanilla

-pinch of salt


  1. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.

  2. Pour in your chopped up cold butter and take a pastry blender or use your hands to chop up your butter into your flour mixture. The mixture will be crumbly. Fold in your chopped walnuts.

  3. In another large bowl, whisk together your buttermilk, egg, syrup, and vanilla together. Slowly add in your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients.

  4. Stir just until the dough comes together. Do not overmix, or the scones will not be as crumbly.

  5. Transfer your dough onto a floured surface and knead the dough about 5 times. Form the dough into a 7 inch round circle. Cut the circle in half, and then cut each half into four equal triangles. Their will be a total of 8 triangles.

  6. Arrange the scones 2 inches apart from each other on a lined baking sheet. Place in the frridge for about 25-30 minutes. (You want your scones cold before baking)

  7. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Make sure the oven rack is in the center of the oven.

  8. Remove your scones from the fridge and brush the tops of your scones with heavy cream. Bake for 15-20 minutes, just until a golden brown.

  9. After the scones are removed from the oven, start on your glaze.

  10. Mix all your ingredients together in a small bowl and add more cream or milk depending on the desired consistency.

  11. Drizzle the glaze over top of the scone, eat, and ENJOY!
