Maple Cinnamon Scones

Recipe by jumpergirl311
READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 20 scones




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl to blend. Cut butter into small chunks and mix until mixture becomes crumbly.
  • Stir milk, maple syrup, and almond in a small bowl to blend. Gradually add wet mixture to dry mixture, stirring just until dough forms a ball.
  • Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead dough a few times, but don't overwork it or the scones will be too dense. Roll it out to 1/2-inch thickness and cut into triangular wedges. Transfer wedges to an ungreased baking sheet.
  • OPTIONAL: beat one egg and brush lightly over scones to create a glaze.
  • Bake scones until golden, about 20 minutes. Transfer to rack to cool.
