Copycat Starbucks Petite Vanilla Bean Scones

Starbucks has some delicious vanilla bean scones, but they're pretty expensive. Now that I've found this copycat recipe, I can just make them from home, and they're not too difficult.

  • 2½ cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup cold butter, cubed
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 egg
  • ½ vanilla bean, scraped
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 6-7 tbsp Heavy Cream
  • ½ Vanilla Bean, scraped
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder & salt. Whisk or pulse in a food processor to mix.
  4. Add butter and cut in with a pastry cutter or pulse in food processor until it looks like cornmeal texture.
  5. In another bowl, whisk together cream, egg, vanilla scraping & extract.
  6. Add liquid to flour mixture & pulse until just combined or stir by hand until dough forms a ball.
  7. Put the dough onto a floured surface & knead briefly until dough comes together.
  8. Roll out dough to about ½" thickness.
  9. Cut dough into 8 rectangles or squares. Then cut each or this on one diagonal and then on the other, creating 32 petite scones.
  10. Place on baking sheet and bake 10-12 minutes (or until edges begin to look golden brown).
  11. Transfer scones to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  12. Whisk together glaze ingredients, adding cream one tablespoon at a time to achieve desired thickness. Dip cooled scones in glaze & place back onto cooling rack to harden.
