Petite Vanilla Bean Scones
Adapted from this recipe by Iowa Girl Eats

Ingredients
Vanilla Scones
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, cubed, cold
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste* (I bought mine here)
or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Vanilla Bean Glaze
2 vanilla beans
3 cups icing sugar
8 to 12 tablespoons heavy cream

Method:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a food processor with metal blade attachment, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. (You could also use a hand-held pastry blender).
  3. Add cubed, cold butter and pulse until blended.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together heavy cream, egg and vanilla paste. Add to flour mixture and pulse until mixture forms a dough ball.
  5. Turn dough out onto a floured board or countertop. Roll out into a rectangle about 1/2” thick.
  6. Cut rectangle into 6 equal pieces. Then cut each piece diagonally. Cut each diagonal piece AGAIN to form the mini scone.
  7. Place cut mini scones onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake 8-9 minutes or until just barely turning colour on the bottom.
  8. Cool completely.
  9. While scones are cooling, make the glaze. Cut each vanilla bean in half along its length and using a sharp knife, scrape out the dark seeds into a large bowl. Add icing sugar and 8 tablespoons of the heavy cream. Mix until blended. Keep adding cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, until glaze drips off a spoon in a steady stream.
  10. Dip each scone in glaze, getting all sides covered. Place iced scones on a cooling rack until dry.

Makes 24 mini scones.
