Walker really, really loves Starbuck’s mini scones. But at $1.50 each, that is robbery, considering he’d happily eat 2 to 3 of them. When I made these dainty scones, he was so happy and crowed to Daddy I had made him “baby scones”. That is what makes baking so worth it 😉
Mini Vanilla Bean Scones
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1½ Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tsp ground vanilla bean
- 1½ tsp baking powder
- Pinch of fine sea salt
- 3 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, diced
- ¼ cup half and half
- 1½ tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1½ tsp Ener-G Egg Replacer (or 1 large egg white)
- 2 Tbsp warm water
- 1½ Tbsp half and half
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk flour, sugar, vanilla bean, baking powder, and salt together in a medium mixing bowl.
Work butter in quickly into small crumbs.
Mix Ener-G and water together, add vanilla and half and half, then pour over flour, mix quickly in.
Scrape dough out onto parchment paper, pat into a circle, about 6 to 7″ across. Cur into 8 wedges, slightly separating the scones on the paper.
Bake for about 9 to 10 minutes. Let cool.
Meanwhile, mix glaze up. Once scones are cooled, pour over, let set up.
Makes 8 scones.
