Maple-Nut Scones

I had made these scones once before, a few years ago. I came upon the recipe again and decided to give them another try. Pretty tasty.


Maple Nut Scones

2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped

2 cups flour
½ cup butter or margarine, firm
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup walnuts, chopped and toasted
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk


- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Mix 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 2 tablespoons finely chopped nuts; reserve.
- Cut the margarine into flour, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, baking powder, and salt with a pastry blender or two large knives in a large bowl until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
- Stir in a ½ cup of toasted nuts.
- Stir in maple syrup, egg, and just enough milk so that the dough leaves the side of the bowl and forms a ball.
- Turn the dough on to a lightly floured surface; gently roll in flour to coat.
- Knead lightly 10 times to coat.
- Pat or roll into an 8-inch circle on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
- Brush with milk and sprinkle with brown sugar nut mixture.
- Cut into eight wedges but do not separate.
- Bake for 16 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Immediately remove from cookie sheet; carefully separate the wedges. Serve warm and enjoy!
