1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks

3/4 cup chopped pecans  

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (yolks only)

1 teaspoon maple extract

1/4 cup sugar

Glaze

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon maple extract

2 to 3 teaspoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 12-cup muffin pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine whipping cream, egg yolks and 1 teaspoon maple extract in another bowl; beat with whisk until well mixed. Pour whipping cream mixture into flour mixture; stir until moist dough forms. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; gently knead 10 times or until smooth.

  4. STEP 4

    Place sugar in bowl. Roll dough into 48 (1-inch) balls. Roll each ball of dough in sugar. Place 3 balls of dough into bottom of each muffin cup; top with another ball of dough. Bake 16-18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 2 minutes. Remove from pan; place onto cooling rack.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon maple extract and enough milk for desired glazing consistency in bowl until well mixed. Drizzle glaze over warm scones.

These are amazing. They don't have the texture of the traditional scones, but they are so good. They also make the house smell amazing. I used toasted walnuts, instead of pecans. They tasted great. The recipe is a keeper.

Love the scones, hate the time to make 48 balls. Can this be done in 12 large bals instead?

Easy to make and has a lovely delicate crumb. I add 1 tsp. cinnamon and increase maple flavoring to 2 tsp. in the scones. Yum!

I have made this recipe numerous times. I love the flavor and texture. I have tried 20 scone recipes, most are dry. These were nice and crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. I highly recommend.
