For the scones

  • 3 1/4 cups flour plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For the maple glaze

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon maple extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


  • To make the scones, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt to a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
  • Pour in the heavy cream and vanilla and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  • Place dough on a floured work surface and use your hands to separate dough into two evenly sized balls.
  • Pat each ball into a circle about 8 inches across and 1 inch thick. Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut each circle of dough into 8 triangles.
  • Place triangles on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until light and fluffy and golden brown. Do not overbake.
  • While scones are cooling, prepare the glaze.  Add brown sugar, butter, and milk to a small sauce pan over low heat and whisk until butter has melted. Heat for 5 minutes, whisking occasionally, to warm milk.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in maple syrup and maple extract.
  • Gradually stir in powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, until the glaze is smooth and thick.
  • Dip the tops of each scone in the glaze and let set.
