Cinnamon Maple Scones

I love scones and have developed several different recipes, depending upon what’s available in the pantry. But Cinnamon Maple scones are my absolute favorite – especially on a chilly January morning with a BIG cup of hot coffee. And the best part? You can knock these out within 30 minutes. Great when you have a house-full of hungry guests – or one hungry husband!

Cinnamon Maple Scones

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 5 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¾ cups butter, cold and cut in cubes
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp. maple extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ cup cinnamon chips (Nestles brand)

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture is a coarse meal (some larger chunks of butter okay). Mix the egg, milk and maple extract in a small bowl and then add to the flour/butter mixture. Mix dough by hand and when it starts to hold together, add in the cinnamon chips.

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly. Pat the dough into a flat disc, approximately ½ to ¾ of an inch thick.

Dough kneaded and shaped - ready for cutting

Cut into 8 wedges and place on prepared cookie sheet.

Cut and ready for the oven!

Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Try to restrain yourself and let them cool for a few minutes!
