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 😉
Well, let me tell you why the coffee shop scones are so dang fattening….heavy cream instead of milk! SO good! Brings tears to your eyes.
Yours sound much healthier!

I guess maple walnut confections are in the air these days! These look super yummy. I’ve never attempted scones, but I really do love them so I’m hoping to try them soon!
Like making biscuits with one of my favorite sweeteners, maple syrup.
Looks like a wonderful combination of flavors…very nice 🙂

Mmmm… this one looks delicious! Definitely getting bookmarked for my next breakfast gathering!
I LOVE scones and these looks wonderful! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Do you thaw the frozen scones before baking, or bake frozen? How long do they take to thaw, if you do thaw? If you don’t thaw, is the baking time different at all? I would love to try this sometime! We love scones! 🙂

They don’t need to thaw first, but you can take them out and set on the counter while the oven preheats. It will only add a few minutes to the baking time. Enjoy!
Those look great!!

IS IT wrong that I plan to make maple butter to put on these? Double the maple, double the deliciousness! Pinned!
