Maple Oat Scones

Maple Oat Scones - Finding Joy in My Kitchen


Scones

1 egg

1/2 C buttermilk

1/4 C maple syrup

2 1/4 C white whole wheat flour

1/2 C quick cooking oats

2 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 stick of butter (4 T), cubed


Glaze

1/4 - 1/2 C powdered sugar

1/8 C maple syrup

1 T milk


Mix together egg, buttermilk and maple syrup.


Then, in another bowl, combine the dry ingredients.


Slowly add the dry ingredients to the moist ingredients.


Then, slowly add the cubed butter to the mixing batter and allow the dough to knead for 5ish minutes.  

I used my mixer to do this.


Shape the dough into a ball, and then freeze for 5 minutes.


Then, roll the dough flat into a large rectangle.


Roll up the dough and press with your hands to flatten.  

The dough should now resemble a rectangle.


Slice the rectangle into 4 equal portions.


Cut each portion diagonally in half.


Place the halves onto a cookie sheet.  


Bake at 425 for 18 minutes, until scones are lightly browned.


Meanwhile, mix the powdered sugar, syrup and milk together to form a glaze.


Drizzle over the warm scones and serve.
