Vanilla Sugar Scones

Intermediate Serves
SKILL LEVEL 12 scones
Vanilla Sugar
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
Vanilla Sugar Scones
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Fleischmann's® Baking Powder
1/3 cup Vanilla Sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold butter, cut into thin slices
1 cup whipping cream
1 egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 to 1/2 cup Vanilla Sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons Vanilla Sugar
Vanilla Icing
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon butter, softened
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 to 2 tablespoons milk

To make Vanilla Sugar, combine 2 cups sugar and 2 tablespoons vanilla extract and mix well.  Store in an airtight container for at least a week and up to one month.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

To make the Vanilla Scones, combine flour, baking powder, 1/3 cup Vanilla Sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two forks just until it is crumbly.  Whisk together the cream, egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla in a small bowl.  Add to the flour mixture, stirring just until it is moistened. 

Turn dough out onto a counter coated with 1/4 cup Vanilla Sugar.  Knead just enough so that the dough will hold its shape.  Using a rolling pin, roll into a 9-inch circle.  Use up to another 1/4 cup Vanilla Sugar, if needed to keep the dough from sticking to the counter or rolling pin.  Dough should be about 3/4-inch thick.  Cut into 12 equal sized wedges.  Carefully transfer to parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter and sprinkle with about 3 tablespoons Vanilla Sugar.  Bake for 16 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove to wire rack to cool.

To make Vanilla Icing, combine powdered sugar, butter and 2 teaspoons vanilla in a small bowl.  Gradually add enough milk to make desired consistency.  Drizzle over scones and serve immediately.
