  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, pecans, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles cornmeal.
  2. Combine the 1/2 cup syrup and milk. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  3. Turn out onto a floured surface and roll to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheet or parchment paper. Brush the tops of the scones with some additional maple syrup.
  4. Bake the syrup-topped scones in a 375 degree F oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 12 scones.
