Ingredients

  • SCONE:

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 2

    tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • 6

    tablespoons cold unsalted butter, diced

  • 1

    (3.4 ounce) small box instant vanilla pudding mix, optional

  • 1

    vanilla bean, scraped (or 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste or extract)

  • 1

    large egg

  • 1/2

    cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream

  • FROSTING:

  • 2

    tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1

    cup powdered sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon vanilla bean paste or extract

  • 2-3

    tablespoons cream

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add cold butter and cut it in using a pastry blender or two butter knives until it forms small crumbs. Stir in pudding mix. Make a well in the center of the mixture and add the vanilla, egg and 1/2 cup heavy cream. Stir gently with a fork until just incorporated. Bring the dough together with your hands. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Form into two small rounds. Cut each round into 8 triangles and place each on the prepared baking sheet. Brush each triangle with a little of the remaining 1 tablespoon heavy cream. While the scones are baking, mix the frosting ingredients. Bake for 8-10 minutes until just golden. Cool before frosting. Make the frosting: Beat butter and sugar with a hand mixer until crumbly. Beat in vanilla and 2 tablespoons cream. Add more cream as needed for desired consistency. Frost cooled scones with a knife or dip them upside down in the frosting. Let it harden, then serve. Notes: The pudding mix is optional, it's just insurance that your scones will stay fluffy and soft. You can use vanilla extract in place of the vanilla beans and/or vanilla bean paste if you wish.
