Our bite sized vanilla bean scone samples went over so well with you all that we wanted to make sure the recipe was in an easy to find location! While we make ours bite sized for sampling, you can cut yours in the more traditional scone shape. Enjoy!!
- 2 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter cubed
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 egg
- 1/2 vanilla bean scraped
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 400.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk to mix. (I prefer a stand mixer or food processor.)
4. Cut in butter or pulse until mixture resembles cornmeal.
5. In a separate bowl, whisk together cream, egg, vanilla bean, and vanilla extract.
6. Add liquid to flour mixture and mix until just combined, until dough forms a ball.
7. Place the dough on a floured work surface and knead until dough comes together.
8. Roll dough to about 1/2 inch thickness.
9. Choose & cut your scone shape by cutting into triangles, squares, etc.
10. Place scones on prepared baking sheet and bake until the edges begin to turn a golden brown. Baking times will vary!! (Our oven runs hot, I tend to bake mine for 6-8 minutes.)
11. Transfer scones to a cooling rack and cool completely.
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 Tbsp water (may need more)
- 2 Tbsp butter, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 vanilla bean, scraped
Add all the glaze ingredients into a bowl and whisk. Glaze will be slightly thick, but should drizzle off a spoon. Depending on scone size/shape, you can dip your scones, or drizzle the glaze over cooled scones. Let stand until glaze is set.
