I love the taste of maple! These have a shiny crust and are tender inside. Serve hot with butter, maple butter or honey.

I made these this morning for breakfast and they are PERFECT. I have studied and baked scones obsessively for the past four years and am disapppointed with so many recipes that taste and feel like a cake mix. These had the perfect scone texture and the flavor was lovely, rich and subtle. I've never had a scone recipe that used so much baking powder, and I might try to cut it down, and I will definitely make these again. YUM!
