Growing up, snickerdoodles were always one of my favorite kinds of cookies. Match that with my love of maple scones and voila! Enter these snickerdoodle scones with a maple glaze drizzled on top. I knew I wanted to try out some scones and I also knew they were going to have that cinnamon-sugar flavor, so this combo was meant to be.
These scones are sweet enough on their own, but in my opinion every scone needs a glaze to be complete. They have that classic scone texture but are also moist enough as well, where they won't taste too dry while you're eating them (as unfortunately some scones often do). In conclusion, these scones are really just a must for you to try and are one of my favorite brunch treats now. Let's just say that I may or may not have had half this recipe worth of scones to myself in one weekend...while still wanting some more by the end of it.
As mentioned before, the glaze is critical for these scones. To me a scone just isn't quite complete without a glaze on top and this maple glaze certainly does the trick! I highly recommend using real maple syrup, as the other kind just won't make that maple flavor pop the same way. After combining all ingredients for this glaze, the cinnamon will leave your glaze nicely speckled, making it picture perfect when drizzled on top of your scones.
When forming your scones, it's okay if they vary slightly in size but you're going to want them each to have a triangular shape. Think of it like you’re cutting the disk of dough like a pizza! This will help you achieve that classic scone shape. When baking, make sure not to over bake as that can result in your scones becoming dry or crumbly. Baking for approximately 15-20 minutes will leave them perfectly cooked in the middle, while staying moist too!
Look at those beauties! If you want to make some extra glaze for some more drizzling or dunking, as always, I fully support that as well. Grab some tea or coffee and you're good to go!
Grab a cup of coffee or tea, lather on that glaze, and dive in! Sweet and sugary with a maple glaze, plus all the snickerdoodle flavors packed in to these snickerdoodle scones that you can dream of.
