Got the recipe from here
2 c all-purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 small box (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 vanilla bean, cut in half and scrape the beans out
1 large egg
1/2 c plus 1 tbsp heavy cream
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Grab a baking sheet and spray it with Pan nonstick spray or line it with parchment paper.
- 2 c all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1 small box (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 vanilla bean, cut in half and scrape the beans out
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 c plus 1 tbsp heavy cream
- 2 tbsp butter, softened
- 1 c powdered sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2-3 tbsp cream
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Grab a baking sheet and spray it with Pan nonstick spray or line it with parchment paper.
- sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the cold butter and cut it in using a pastry cutter until it forms small crumbs.
- Mix in pudding mix.
- Make a well in the center of the mixture and add the vanilla, egg and 1/2 cup heavy cream.
- Stir gently with a fork until everything is incorporated, don’t over mix. Bring the dough together in a ball, with your hands.
- Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Form into two small rounds. roll out the 2 balls into a small circle, then cut each circle into 8 triangles and place each scone on the baking sheet.
- Brush each triangle with a little of the remaining 1 tablespoon heavy cream. (you may need more than a tbsp, I did)
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just golden.
- Cool the scones before frosting
- for the frosting: In a stand mixer add butter and sugar and mix until crumbly.
- Beat in vanilla and 2 tablespoons cream. Add more cream as needed for desired consistency. I did mine thick.
- Frost cooled scones by dipping them upside down in the frosting, and then smoothing out the frosting evenly with a butter knife.
- Let it harden, then I did the frosting a second time and then serve.
