I may be developing a slight addiction to scones. For some reason they don’t seem quite as sweet, almost “healthier” than other types of pastries. These maple walnut scones are delicious and not too sweet, just right.
Kitchen Tip: You can make up the wedges, and then freeze an unbaked portion for another day. That way you won’t be tempted to eat them all because, well, they taste better the day they’re made.
The verdict: Sweet, but not overly sweet. It doesn’t have the large crystals of sugar like the ones at the bakery. Then again, it has fewer calories, too. The maple and walnut flavors aren’t too pronounced. Dry, but not too dry. Then again, it’s fresh out of the oven. Overall it makes a very satisfying breakfast. I can see DH wanting to add cream cheese or jam, but me–I’m a plain kind of girl. Although you wouldn’t know it the way I strut around our local coffee shop 😉
