I’ll admit it – I really don’t make enough plain vanilla things. Vanilla all on its own is such an incredible flavor. While I use it in the vast majority of the sweet things I make, it is usually as a supporting or enhancing flavor. Vanilla deserves some time in the spotlight, don’t you think?
Here I did it justice in these triple vanilla scones. Vanilla sugar and vanilla extract are incorporated into the scone dough and the warm scones are topped with a vanilla bean glaze. The finished product is perfection – warm, tender buttery scones wafting vanilla scent through the air.
They could be a lovely vehicle for a deserving jam or preserve, or you can honor their simplicity by enjoying them all on their own. These are most definitely good enough to hold their own against the most gussied up, fancy pants flavors and would be a welcome addition to any breakfast or brunch spread. I won’t soon forget them and will certainly be making them again soon.
