I am a about to take a professional cooking class and so you probably are going to not like what I am going to say, but I have to say it.
The best scones in the whole wide world are made with two pre-made mixes.
Don’t get all uppity, I love baking from scratch. Just try these and you’ll know I am right!
Krusteaz Sugar Cookie Mix
2 tsp of vanilla extract or black walnut extract
1 cup diced black walnuts
1/2 cup rolled oats
Optional – Choose one: Raisins, Dried Cranberries or nothing at all!
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 T water or milk
Prepare as you would according to the directions, although in this case mix the dry ingredients together of both mixes and then the wet ingredients include the extracts and then combine. Then add chopped black walnuts and optional raisins or cranberries.
Divide into two parts and then with your hands pat into rounds on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed with Pam.
While patting down pour 1/4 cup of rolled oats on top of each round.
With a long knife, cut into 8 pieces as you would a pizza.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown at 375 degrees.
After you take the scones out of the oven, combine the confectioners sugar and 1 T water or milk and combine until the mixture resembles heavy cream.
Drizzle the topping over the golden scone. Hurry and eat before they are gone!
