2 1/2 teaspoons
real maple syrup
maple flavored extract
These were really good, however, I thought that baking them at 425 deg. seemed high compared to a lot of other scone recipes I've seen, so (fortunately) I decided to bake them at 375 deg.
Even though I only baked them for 15 minutes, they were still overly brown on the bottom, and a few actually burned on the bottom. My oven temperature is usually right on with recipes' baking temp. & time, so I was surprised that these were supposed to bake at 50 deg. higher than I baked them at, yet for the same time as I baked mine. Next time, I'll decrease the baking time further (perhaps 12 or 13 minutes at 375). I used dried cranberries. I was puzzled by the reference to "dried pears" in Step 4 of the recipe since they weren't mentioned as possible ingredients.
This was a very sticky and unmanagable dough even after adding extra flour to it, I would not use this recipe again.
WOW!!! These are so yummy. I must say it's a very good recipe. Though I did a couple of things. First, my family doesn't care for currents so I omitted them. Secondly, I only formed into one dough into a large cirlce rather then what was called for. I cut it into 8 pieces. Finally, I brushed the tops with the remaining bit of buttermilk that I had and put regualar granulated sugar on the top. When they were done I made a glaze from 1c. Powedered Sugar, 2T. Real Maple Syrup and A little vanilla and maple extracts. Drizzled this on the cooled scones and it was amazing. They tasted just like the ones that the restaurant I used to work at served. I really must say these are great. I had used another and this recipe I was very happy with. The whole family ate them up. Thank you very much for haring this recipe.
Very good! My first scone-making experience and they turned out softer and more tender than ones I've bought from stores. They were crunchy on top because of the sugar(I used the unprocessed natural sugar, so it was a lot more coarse, giving it a very pretty look!). I replaced one cup of the flour with whole wheat pastry flour. My food processor never got the mixture to look coarse or grainy, but more like very fine sand. I love the subtle maple flavor. The only thing I didn't love was the dried cherries...they tasted sort of like raisins after baking. I tasted them before I put them in the batter, and they were good, so I would probably leave them out next time.
If you want a good recipe look farther. If you want an EXCELLANT scone stop right here. I used dried cranberries in place of the cherries. and viola! Get ready to enjoy the applause!!
I loved this recipe! I did not add the fruit. I used a large scoop and did not roll out the dough. I reduced the heat to 375 degrees F, because I did not roll them out, and cooked for 20 min. I did not add anything to the top. I used salted butter and omitted the extra salt. Wonderful texture. Will make many more times. Would also be great with a maple glaze over the top. Thank you for this recipe.
Adding pecans or walnuts would make this similar to the old-style Starbuck's maple-oat scone that I loved so much!
Scones turned out perfect with a wonderful maple flavor. I used crasins in place of the dried cherries. This is definitely a "keeper" that I will bake often.
