Maple Pecan Scones

Maple Pecan Scones

I’ve got maple syrup on the brain these days and could not stop thinking about maple scones last week…

Luckily, food blog search, one of my favorite online sources for recipes, turned up just the kind of recipe I’d been hoping for. Better yet, it comes from one of my favorite new blogs, The Wednesday Chef, written by Luisa Weiss, a half America-half Italian girl who was raised in Germany but lived in NYC until she moved back to Berlin a couple of years ago. Her complicated cultural heritage appears to have given her a deep appreciation for food – both her recipes and photos are to die for.

Luisa attributes this scone recipe to the Samuel Sewall Inn in MA (via a NYTimes article a number of years back.) The only change I made to this recipe was the addition of a maple glaze. And, if I do say so myself, it is an excellent addition – it really kinda makes the scones.

The combination of maple and pecan is pretty incredible – sweet, nutty, slightly smokey. They’re also quick and easy to make – one of my requirements for anything I bake these days.
