DIRECTIONS

  • SCONES:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Mix flour, oats, 2 T. brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add butter and rub in with fingertips, two knives, or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the nuts.
  • Stir together 1/2 cup whipping cream and 1/2 cup maple syrup to blend and gradually add this mixture to the dry mixture, stirring just until the dough comes together. Add more cream if needed, if the dough seems dry (I didn't need to add more).
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead gently, about 5 turns. Pat dough into an 8 inch circle and cut into 8 wedges. Transfer wedges to baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart.
  • Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly.
  • GLAZE:
  • Whisk together 2 T. brown sugar, 6 T. whipping cream and 2 T maple syrup. Gradually whisk in enough powdered sugar to make a thick glaze. Drizzle glaze over warm scones. Allow to stand until glaze sets.
  • Notes: The dough was sticky and difficult to knead, I might skip this step the next time. Also, the scones spread out a lot while baking, so I might try patting the dough into a smaller circle the next time.
