Glazed Sweet Potato Scones

Jen Sobjack

Delicious Sweet Potato Scones with Brown Sugar Glaze are the best scones you’ll ever try! They’re light and fluffy sweet potato scones topped with a brown sugar glaze. Loaded with cinnamon and brown sugar, these scones will have you coming back for seconds.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir with a whisk to combine.


Using a pastry cutter, fork, or two knives, blend the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles pea-sized crumbs.


In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk the buttermilk, sweet potato, and vanilla together.


Stir the sweet potato mixture into the flour mixture. Stir just until a crumbly dough forms, taking care not to over-mix.


Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead it gently until a shaggy dough forms. Shape the dough into a 7-inch round disk. Cut the dough into 8 equal-sized wedges. Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet.


Bake until golden brown. Transfer the scones to a wire rack to cool slightly and top with glaze.
