Vanilla Scones

Are you a sweet or savory breakfast person? Or both?

I would say I’m both. As a kiddo I was definitely sweet, but I think most kids go for the sweet stuff like french toast (was my favorite!) instead of the veggie omelet (which is now my favorite!). Just my assumption.

As an adult, I now know that pancakes, donuts, muffins, scones and french toast just are not always the best way to start the day.

I sure wish it was though…

However? Every once in awhile it’s completely and totally fine with me. This is why I made Vanilla Scones this week! I was having a little coffee breakfast craving for something sweet and I wasn’t about to whip up pancakes before work. 36 weeks pregnant here – we need our sleep!

Cook time
14 mins
Total time
24 mins


2½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
⅓ cup granulated sugar
1 egg
½ cup milk
1 tablespoons pure vanilla extract (I used vanilla bean paste)
¾ cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
Vanilla Glaze
1½ cups confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons water (may need more)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (I used vanilla bean paste)


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking mat with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat; set aside.
  • In a stand-alone mixer fitted with a paddle attachment mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, and granulated sugar. Add cold cubed butter and mix on low-speed until course crumbs forms - careful not to over-mix.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and vanilla then add it to the mixer and mix until dough comes together. It will be crumbly.
  • Flour a clean service and kneed dough just a bit until it comes together. Form it into a circle about 1
