These tender scones have Autumn flavors all baked up into toasty, spiced wedges drizzled with a buttery maple glaze. These maple oat scones are tender and fluffy with a crumbly bite that melds with sticky icing for a comforting treat that will satisfy any hungry bunch.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Use a food processor to combine the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and spices.
Then add butter and grind into a sandy texture.
Add the buttermilk, egg, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
Pulse until the mixture is just combined but not a ball, similar to making pie dough.
Then turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Use hands to knead a few times. Then form a 9 inch disc.
Use a pizza cutter to slice 8 even slices.
Then place slices onto baking sheet, leaving room between them.
Brush each scone with heavy cream.
Bake 15-18 minutes, until golden brown.
Once you remove the scones from oven make the glaze.
Put butter into saucepan and melt. Then Combine all of remaining glaze ingredients. Use a small whisk to smooth. Remove from heat and spoon over the scones.
This batch can easily be doubled to make 16 scones. Divide dough into 2 discs and cut 8 wedges from each, baking on two baking sheets.
