Maple Glazed Scone...How many does this make?

 Did you notice right away that one is missing? Yea, someone had to be the "guinea pig", this was one instance it was good to be the test subject. I used maple extract for the flavoring because syrup wouldn't give this enough flavor without adding too much moisture. Of course you could play around with the glaze and syrup, maybe a good brushing with syrup would soak in then a lighter glaze...
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon maple extract
1 1/4 cups whipping cream or heavy cream
Lightly grease a sheet pan, set aside.
Preheat oven to 400F. Mix flour, sugar baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
Mix the extract in with the cream
then add to the dry ingredients, gently stirring just until combined.
Shape in a disc, cut into 6 or 8 pieces, place on prepared pan.

Bake 9-11 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Glaze, or not.

1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon maple extract
1-2 tablespoons milk or cream
Mix until smooth, thin enough to drizzle but not watery.

Did I mention how good these were with coffee? "Thou shalt not covet!"
