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.
Copycat Starbucks Petite Vanilla Bean Scone
Author: Stefanie Fauquet (from HERE)
- 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
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
- Combine flour, sugar, baking powder & salt. Whisk or pulse in a food processor to mix.
- Add butter and cut in with a pastry cutter or pulse in food processor until it looks like cornmeal texture.
- In another bowl, whisk together cream, egg, vanilla scraping & extract.
- Add liquid to flour mixture & pulse until just combined or stir by hand until dough forms a ball.
- Put the dough onto a floured surface & knead briefly until dough comes together.
- Roll out dough to about ½" thickness.
- Cut dough into 8 rectangles or squares. Then cut each or this on one diagonal and then on the other, creating 32 petite scones.
- Place on baking sheet and bake 10-12 minutes (or until edges begin to look golden brown).
- Transfer scones to a cooling rack to cool completely.
- 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.
