Maple Scones Recipe

A while back I had said that I was going to post my maple scones recipe. I have yet to do it. Between the crash of my computer some weeks ago and the current weather situation, completion of projects has been slow. The internet connection keeps coming and going and I'm not able to find my B&B website anywhere so I haven't been able to post the recipe. I'm going to put my maple sugar scone recipe right here so everyone can see it and hopefully try making them. If you need granulated maple sugar you can get it from the Orebed Maple Sugar Shack. These scones are delicious! Enjoy.....

Maple Sugar Scones
3 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup granulated maple sugar
8 tablespoons very cold butter
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 large egg
2 Tbls. maple syrup to spread on scones before baking
Maple crunchies OR granulated maple sugar (either may be sprinkled on scones before baking)
Combine all the dry ingredients and wisk together. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, maple syrup and buttermilk and mix together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir with a fork until the dough is shaggy.  Place shaggy dough on a lightly floured board and knead 5-6 times. Form into a ball and flatten to about 1 inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges. Place the wedges on an ungreased cookie sheet and brush each with maple syrup and then sprinkle each with maple crunchies.Bake at 400 degrees on center rack of oven for 18 min. or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
