Maple Glazed Scones
Level of Difficulty: Easy
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 pound (1 stick) chilled butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 large egg
2 tablespoons milk, or as needed
How to Make
Preheat oven to 400.
In a large bowl, combine whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine.
Cut butter into 1 tablespoon pieces. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Add nuts if using.
Stir in maple syrup and egg. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until dough is moistened but not too sticky.
Turn dough onto a floured surface and roll in the flour to coat. Knead lightly for a minute.
Transfer dough to a piece of parchment paper or a Silpat sheet. Press into an 8-inch disk. Cut into 8 wedges but don't separate.
Bake until golden brown, approximately 20 minutes. Immediately remove from baking sheet and carefully separate. Serve warm.
