    Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:

    I have always been a scone lover, and maple is my favorite flavor. There is a fine line with the texture I like: not to biscuit-like, not too cake-like, and a nut-like flavor, without chunks of nuts. This recipe is from is from "The King Arthur Baking Book" and has all that, plus some icing on the cake. Since my family has already requested this three times in four days, I decided to put this recipe where I can't lose it...Zaar!

      Very nice recipe. I made them this morning and they turned out great. I did them without the nuts and frosting and just chilled unsalted butter. I was afraid they were going to come out rather hard or overpoweringly sweet. I was wrong in both cases. They had a nice hard shell but the interior was soft and light. The maple tastes was very noticable when I first put it in my mouth but then it dissipated to allow for the ordinary scone flavor (with a hint of sweetness) to be tasted. These features made in my mind a very nice balance in textures and flavor. The one thing I may change is the cooking time as they came out a little bit browner than I would have liked but all in all it is a very good recipe. Thank you for sharing it.
