Vanilla Bean Scones (like Starbucks)

So, whenever I go to Starbucks, I always get one of there vanilla bean scones, they are so so delicious. Whenever I eat something that I love I always try to replicate it at home. BIG emphasis on the try part. So I went online and found this recipe, if you like scones, you need to try it!


2 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup of sugar

5 tablespoons butter (cold)

1 cup full fat sour cream

1 lg egg yolk

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 vanilla bean

For the glaze:

1 1/2 cup pwd sugar

milk, as needed

vanilla bean


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Whisk together dry ingredients
cut cold butter into dry ingredients, until it resembles coarse meal

in separate bowl, whisk together sour cream, egg yolk, vanilla bean, and vanilla extract

Add this to the flour-butter mixture , stir until mixture becomes a cohesive ball

pat dough into a disk, about i inch high

cut dough into 8 pieces, triangles, place on an ungreased baking sheet
BAKE 15 min or until golden brown

Prepare glaze while scones are baking (mix glaze ingredients until smooth)

using a pastry brush, brush glaze over hot scones; serve immediately or store in an airtight container.
