Maple Oatmeal Scones

I ran across this recipe in the Weekend Cooking of the Food Network magazine, saw Maple and Scones, immediately bookmarked!! I love maple!! Food Network certainly got it right... a Saturday or Sunday morning is a perfect time to whip these scones up and relax with a nice cup of coffee!! (Do a little better planning than i did though so it isn't ruined with a trip to the grocery store in the middle... seems to be a trend!!) If you love scones, you will want to give these ones a try!

The perfect size...with a little extra maple glaze on the top!

Start the scones by mixing flour, oats, baking powder, sugar and salt with an electric mixer.

Cut or dice butter. With the mixer on the lowest speed, add butter to flour mixture. And i will forewarn you, you DID read the recipe right.... you do use 1 pound of butter!!

Mix until the butter is in pea-size pieces.

In a separate bowl, mix the buttermilk, maple syrup and eggs. Quickly add to the flour-and-butter mixture. Mix until just blended... dough may be sticky.

Dump the dough onto a well-floured surface. Flour your hands and rolling pin and roll the dough 3/4 to 1 inch thick. You should see lumps of butter in the dough.

Cut into 3-inch rounds.

Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with egg wash. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the tops are crisp and the insides are done.

Onto the glaze... combine the confectioner's sugar, maple syrup and vanilla.

When the scones are done, cool for 5 minutes and drizzle each scone with glaze. Garnish the tops with some uncooked oats.
Enjoy with a nice cup of coffee!


  1. Mmmm, the maple oat scones at Starbucks are so good. I bet these taste just like them!

  2. Those scones look great. I made a maple butter cream frosting for cupcakes over the weekend but I have a lot left over. I'm just imagining it drizzled over some warm maple scones. Yummmmm.
