Walnut Butter Scones

Scotland is a place I dream of visiting someday. The beautiful countryside, the food, the people, it just all sounds amazing. Scones are something I could eat everyday, all day long and I know you will enjoy them. Ideal for breakfast or for afternoon tea.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 1 Cup sour cream
  • 1/3 Cup walnut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add the sour cream and walnut butter, stir together until the dough forms a ball.

Pour onto a lightly floured surface and pat to about 3/4 inch thick circle. Cut into wedges or using a small biscuit cutter to cut into circles.
Place on a greased or lined baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

While scones are baking, prepare the glaze. Whisk together the rest of the ingredients and brush all over the baked scones. Serve warm or at room temperature.
 

Walnut Shopping Tip

Whenever possible, purchase whole, not presliced or chopped nuts. They have a longer shelf life.

Walnut Cooking Tip

Toasting your nuts helps release essential oils and intensifies their flavor.
