Maple Banana Walnut Scones

These scones remind me of banana walnut muffins and the wonderful smell of hot pancakes with maple syrup all rolled together. I could hardly wait for the scones to cool a bit to put the maple glaze on them.
Instead of racing around trying to find all the latest deals this weekend, I decided to make these. Did you hide from the crowds, or did you head out to get all your shopping done? I haven’t started shopping yet, guess I’ll have to start soon.

    These look amazing! Can you use over-ripe bananas like you do with banana bread? I would love to have something else to do with the ones in my freezer!

    What a smart way to use up ripe bananas – I’ve only used them in banana bread and muffins. Bet they make these scones extra moist.

    I must be doing something wrong. I had to add a lot more flour because my dough was so sticky and then they just tasted floury. Help! :)
