Vanilla Hazelnut Scones are soft and flavorful, loaded with crunchy hazelnuts and topped with a flavorful caramel icing.

I  love making easy and delicious cookies to feed a crowd, like Flourless Peanut Butter CookiesBlueberry Lemon Ricotta Cookies and White Chocolate Lemon Raspberry Cookies.

Vanilla Hazelnut Scones
Author: Catalina Castravet Serves: 8 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 23 minutes Total time: 33 mins



  • 2 cups  unbleached all-purpose flour  ( + ⅓ cup if needed)
  • 1/3 cup  sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon  baking powder 
  • 1/3 teaspoon  salt 
  • 6 tablespoons  chilled unsalted butter 
  • 3/4 cup  whole milk 
  • 1  large egg yolk 
  • 1 teaspoon  vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 cup  hazelnuts  (toasted)
  • 1/3 cup  whole milk  (for brushing)


  • 1/2 cup  powdered sugar 
  • 2-3  caramel coffee creamer 
  • 2  vanilla beans  (seeds only (optional))



  1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
  2. Butter and flour a baking sheet or scone pan.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add butter and rub in with your fingertips until butter is reduced to the size of rice grains.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl using an electric mixer fitted with the wire attachment or a hand mixer, whisk together ¾ cups milk, egg yolk and vanilla. Add the mixture to the dry ingredients; mix until dough comes together in moist clumps. Mix in hazelnuts. If the dough is too sticky, add the remaining ⅓ cup of flour. Gather dough into a ball.
  5. Press dough out on a lightly floured surface into an 8-inch round; cut round into 8 wedges. Transfer wedges to prepared baking sheet spacing 1 inch apart; or to scone pan.
  6. Brush scones lightly with milk and bake until the scones become crusty and the top is golden; a tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 20 - 23 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack.


  1. Mix creamer, vanilla bean seeds and sugar in a medium bowl until smooth, drizzle over the cooled scones.
  2. Serve!
