Sprinkle Scones

Oh yes, another scone recipe – because in my opinion, you can never have too many. I can’t recall ever meeting a scone I didn’t like, except perhaps those containing peanuts/nuts since I’m allergic to them. Otherwise, scones are my jam! Maple, pumpkin, vanilla bean, cinnamon - even savory versions like bacon swiss - you name it, I’m there. Last week I was in a celebratory mood, so I decided that our weekend scones needed sprinkles. I whipped these up Saturday morning, and instead of using my scone pan, I cut them into small triangles – because let’s face it, tiny food is cute. I highly recommend making these over the weekend, especially if like us, you reside somewhere that is currently exhibiting temperatures identical to those of the ice planet Hoth (Star Wars geeks, you know what I’m talking about). Have a fantastic weekend – and stay warm!

  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 7 Tbsp butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp water

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Slice the butter into tablespoon-sized pieces, and using a pastry blender, incorporate it into the dry ingredients. In another medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and then stir in the sprinkles.

Turn the dough out on to a floured surface and knead lightly to combine. Roll the dough into a large rectangle, and then cut the dough into wide strips. Cut each strip into triangles – I got about 20 scones total.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Remove to a wire rack set over a sheet of aluminum foil to catch the drips from the glaze. To make the glaze, whisk together the water and powdered sugar until smooth – the glaze should be thin. Dip the top of each scone in the glaze, and then place back on the rack to finish cooling.

    These look so fun and happy! We are in the midst of some terribly cold weather too, and making scones sounds like the perfect thing to do this weekend.

    I’ve never made a scone before, but this might be the recipe I have to use to break the dry spell!
