1/1 Photo of Double Maple Syrup Scones
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!
