Glazed Maple Pecan Scones recipe highlights:
These scones are incredible! Your family will not be able to resist them.
You can wait until the scones cool before glazing the top so it goes on nice and thick. Or you can glaze them while they are fresh out the oven.
Use real maple syrup. It can be found with the pancake syrups on the breakfast aisle.
This time of year is perfect for maple and pecan flavors!!
It's absolutely a favorite fall flavor combo. I love the contrast of the sweet tender scone and crunchy, nutty pecans. I could eat this flavor of scone all day long.
I turned to my apple cinnamon scones recipe and used that for the base of today's scones. I was so pleased with the texture, I knew that was the recipe to follow.
The scones came out tender and delicious. They are best warm out of the oven, but will still be tasty the next day. They're buttery, light, and taste just like fall. Hints of maple and crunchy pecans fill each bite.
Pure maple syrup makes a difference
Make sure you use pure maple syrup. You want 100% of that maple goodness without all the extras. You will really be able to taste in the glaze, so it's important to use the real deal.
I like to shape the dough into a disk and then cut in into wedges. Alternatively, you can scoop the dough with a large cookie scoop and place them 2-inches apart on the baking sheet.
These Glazed Maple Pecan Scones will be the perfect breakfast alongside a hot cup of coffee on a cold morning!
