These maple and brown sugar scones are quick and delicious and will make your house smell heavenly! Perfect to warm you up on a crisp fall morning!
Fall is definitely here, and I love it! With the cool, crisp air and chilly mornings, I like to cook breakfast more. Since mornings are busy, I need recipes that are easy and quick. These maple and brown sugar scones are just that!
I had them mixed up and on a pan, ready to go in the oven in 10 minutes. Then baked and ready to eat in 15. Plus, my house smelled like maple for at least half the day. Mmmmm...
While your oven preheats, dump the flour, sugars, and baking powder in the base of a food processor. Pulse it a few times to mix. Add the cold butter and process under the mixture is crumbly. (You can do this by hand as well; however, you may want the butter to be cold but softened slightly) Pour the crumbly mixture into a mixing bowl. Stir in the cream, egg, and maple extract just until the dough comes together.
Dump the dough onto a lightly floured surface and pat the dough out to about a ½ inch thick. Cut the scones out using a 2 ½-inch biscuit cutter. Place the scones on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray or lined with parchment. Parchment is my preference for these because cleaning is much easier.
Whisk together a ⅛ cup of cream and a ⅛ cup of pure maple syrup. Brush the tops of the scones generously and then sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake in your preheated oven for 14 minutes. Cool slightly and serve!
