Maple Bacon Scones

Maple Bacon Scones are both savory and sweet and the best of both worlds. They're loaded with bacon, then topped with an easy and delicious maple glaze. Trust me when I say this flavor is a fan-favorite!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter cold
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 slices cooked bacon

for the glaze:

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 slice cooked bacon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together; then, thinly cut butter into the same bowl and use your hands to mix butter into the dry ingredients until it's incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, combine egg, syrup, milk, melted butter, and vanilla, then pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir to combine; set aside.
  • Cook 3 slices of bacon; set one aside, and break the other two up into tiny pieces and stir the bacon into the scone dough.
  • Flour a baking mat and then pour dough out onto the mat. Use your hands to form dough into a circular round, about 1/2" thick and 7"-8" circumference. Be careful not to roll it out too thin or the scones won't be the correct texture.
  • Use a knife to make 4 cuts, creating 8 scones. Move the scones onto a baking sheet, and bake the scones for about 20 minutes. Optional: brush a bit of melted butter onto the scones before baking.
  • While scones are baking, make the maple glaze: whisk syrup and powdered sugar with an electric mixer. Once scones are done, drizzle them with the maple glaze and top them with more cooked bacon.

Notes

*Calorie count is per serving, and the serving size is 1 scone 
Tip: Melt the butter first and set it aside. Then, whisk the milk, egg, syrup, and vanilla together and once the butter has cooled to room temperature, then you can add it in with the other wet ingredients. 
To freeze: you can prep these ahead of time, place the cut scones onto a baking sheet and place the baking sheet in the freezer. Then, when you're ready to bake, just pop the whole sheet in the oven, though be aware that you'll probably have to bake the scones a bit longer since they'll be frozen
