Coffee Scones with Coffee Icing @createdbydiane

Nothing will get you going in the morning like these COFFEE SCONES!

Well if you’re a coffee drinker I’m sure that a hot cup of coffee will help,

for me it’s all about the yummy scones…..you can have the cup of coffee.

Cold butter is the KEY to making light scones.
I cut it into small pieces on a sheet of wax paper, and place it in my freezer, then when I have the dry ingredients measured out, I remove it from the freezer and cut it in with a pastry cutter.

If the dough is over-worked or the butter isn’t cold the end result will be heavy.

The icing is thin and easy to brush onto the tops and sides of scones.
I used a silicone pastry brush and applied the glaze to the top, then down the sides of the scones.

For extra coffee flavor, I put some instant coffee into a mesh strainer and pressed down on it to break up into smaller pieces on top of the wet icing for it to stick to the tops of the scones.

These scones were DEVOURED!

My son said they tasted like pancakes and syrup.

I think he picked up on the brown sugar and vanilla,

it’s always fun to see what flavor he picks out!
