Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter

1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut

1/2 cup macadamia and cashew mix,  chopped

1/4 cup crushed pineapple, drained, reserve 1 tablespoon juice

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

2 tablespoons sweetened flaked coconut

 

 *Substitute any one type of nut.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour, brown sugar and baking powder in bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/2 cup coconut and macadamia cashew mix.

  3. STEP 3

    Beat pineapple, reserved pineapple juice and eggs in another bowl until well mixed; stir pineapple mixture into flour mixture (mixture may be slightly dry). Knead about 10 times or until mixture forms a dough, adding small amount of flour, if necessary.

  4. STEP 4

    Divide dough in half. Pat each half into 6-inch circle. Place onto large ungreased baking sheet. Cut each circle into 6 wedges. Do not separate. Sprinkle each circle with 1 tablespoon coconut.

  5. STEP 5

    Bake 13-15 minutes or until scones are lightly browned. Separate into individual scones.

Tip #1

While on the “far” west coast of the United States, Maui, one of the small islands of the Hawaiian islands, provides us with many agricultural crops that create a truly American cuisine. Maui offers such treats as macadamia nuts, pineapple, Maui onions and sugar cane.

This recipe was ok but not great. You could hardly taste the pineapple and I was surprised that it said " knead about 10 times". Typically you keep the dough as cold as possible for scones and handle it very little. I realize this was a dry dough that needed to be made into a ball but I think kneading it made it a bit tough. Also I would bake the scones at a bit lower temperature and not put the coconut on top until the last 5 minutes so it does not turn too brown.

I used a cutters to make individual round scones (it made 16 but I have a tendancy to over-knead so they were a bit flat) I used sliced almonds (crushed up) in place of the macadamia / cashew nuts and used 1/8 c. Crushed pineapple & 1/8 c. Canned mandarin oranges (sliced). I also didnt sprinkle additional coconut on top. They were tasty and sweet and so quick and easy to make.
