Butterscotch Scones with Vanilla Bean Glaze

These moist and flaky scones come together in minutes and make a great breakfast on the go or an afternoon snack with coffee or tea. Heilala Butterscotch Vanilla Extract enhances the caramelly richness of butterscotch chips in the dough, and the pretty flecks of seeds from Heilala Pure Vanilla Paste in the glaze dress up this easy quick bread.


Butterscotch Scones with Vanilla Bean Glaze

Makes 8 scones


cups (281 grams) all-purpose flour2 tablespoons (24 grams) granulated sugar1 tablespoon (15 grams) baking powder2 teaspoons (6 grams) kosher salt5 tablespoons (70 grams) cold unsalted butter, cubed½ cup (85 grams) butterscotch chips1 cup (240 grams) plus 4 to 5 tablespoons (60 to 75 grams) cold heavy whipping cream, divided1 teaspoon (4 grams) Heilala Butterscotch Vanilla Extract½ cup (60 grams) confectioners’ sugar1 teaspoon (6 grams) Heilala Pure Vanilla Paste


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using your hands or a pastry blender, cut in cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; stir in butterscotch chips.
In a liquid-measuring cup, combine 1 cup (240 grams) cold cream and butterscotch vanilla extract; add cream mixture to fl our mixture, and fold just until moistened. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and knead just until dough comes together, 7 to 8 times. Pat dough into a 7-inch circle (about 1 inch thick); using a sharp knife or bench scraper, cut into 8 wedges. Place wedges on prepared pan. Freeze until firm, 10 to 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
Brush 2 tablespoons (30 grams) cold cream onto scones.
Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes. Remove from pan, and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, vanilla paste, and remaining 2 to 3 tablespoons (30 to 45 grams) cold cream until smooth and pourable; drizzle onto warm scones. Serve warm.
