Coffee Icing
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 2 tablespoon instant coffee
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Mix hot water with coffee, add to it the powdered sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla.
  2. The mixture should be free-flowing and smooth to glaze over the scones.
  3. I used a silicone pastry brush and applied the glaze to the top, then down the sides of the scones.
  4. 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.
