  • ¼ cup chopped pecans toasted
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1-½ tsp. baking powder
  • 3 tbsp. salted butter cut into ¼ inch cubes
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp. pure maple syrup


  • 3 tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup



  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with wax paper and spread chopped pecans in a single layer on baking sheet. Toast pecans for 3-4 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • Set oven to 375 degrees.
  • Combine cream and maple syrup. Set aside.
  • Mix flour and baking powder. Scatter butter over top and mix with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
  • Add toasted pecans and stir to combine.
  • Stir in cream and syrup mixture until dough begins to form, about 30 seconds.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured counter and knead until rough, slightly sticky ball forms, about 15 seconds. Shape dough into 5-inch round, about ¾ inch thick. Cut dough into 4 wedges.
  • Place wedges on the same baking sheet you used for the pecans. Bake until scone tops are light golden brown. 18-22 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through baking. Transfer to wire rack and let cool for 20 minutes.


  • While scones bake, whisk powdered sugar and maple syrup together in bowl. Once scones are cool, drizzle with glaze. Let glaze set for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
