Petite Vanilla Scones

makes 20 small scones

adapted from Baking Bites


2 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

1/3 cup sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup milk


Preheat oven to 400.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Add vanilla and beat to incorporate. Add in half of flour mixture, followed by the milk. Stir in remaining flour mixture until dough comes together in a firm, slightly sticky mass.

Divide dough into 5 equal pieces and roll into tennis ball sized rounds. On lightly floured surface, press each ball into a disk about 1/2 in. thick. Cut each disk into quarters and place on prepared baking sheet.

Bake 11-15 min. or until lightly browned. Cool before glazing.


Vanilla Glaze

2 cups powdered sugar

4 TB milk

2 tsp vanilla extract


Beat together all glaze ingredients until very smooth and of pour-able consistency. Add extra sugar if too thin, extra milk if too thick. Pour over cooled scones.
