Ingredients

Scones:

  • 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

Icing:

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

Instructions

Scones:

  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.

Icing:

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