For the Scones:

  • ½ cup half-and-half or heavy cream
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter cubed and chilled

For the Glaze:

  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoon half-and-half or heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste


For the Scones:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Whisk together the half-and-half, egg and vanilla bean paste.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the cubes of butter and use a pastry cutter or two forks to cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add the half-and-half mixture to the flour mixture and mix in until a soft dough forms.
  • Roll out on a lightly floured surface into a 9x13 rectangle, about ½ inch thick.
  • Cut into 4-5 inch long rectangles, the cut each rectangle on the diagonal, creating a triangle.
  • Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until just golden brown.
  • Let cool while you prepare the glaze.

For the Glaze:

  • Whisk together the powdered sugar, half-and-half and vanilla bean paste into a thick glaze.
  • Place the scones on a wire rack on top of the baking sheet. Drizzle the glaze on top and allow to set.
