  • 2 cups spelt flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons cold butter (one stick)
  • 1/2 cup half & half (or light cream)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar



  1. Preheat oven to 400 F
  2. Add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl
  3. Cut in the COLD butter with a pastry blender or a couple knives

  4. Add half & half, maple syrup and walnuts and mix with a spatula until it is just combined. Do not over mix the dough

  5. While the dough is still in the bowl, use your hands to knead the dough for one minute. Don't over knead the dough

  6. Flour your working surface (I used a marble pastry board) and divide the dough into two pieces. I shape them into two rectangles
  7. Cut each piece into triangles. I get 6 scones per rectangle

  8. Place the scones on a parchment paper lined jelly roll pan, leaving space between each scone
  9. Place pan in oven and bake for 12 - 15 minutes. They should be lightly browned around the edges and have a little give if you touch them


  1. Place the butter and maple syrup into a small saucepan and heat until the butter is melted. Whisk the confectioner's sugar in it until creamy
  2. Scoop some glaze in a sandwich bag, cut one of the corners of the bag and squeeze as much glaze as you want over scones

  3. Eat

  4. Smile
  5. Enjoy
