|Maple Cranberry Scones|
Although I get a lot of recipes and recipe inspiration from magazines, cookbooks, and other food blogs, I do enjoy the challenge of recipe creating when I have the time and creativity strikes! It was for this reason that I agreed to be a Tonewood Maple ambassador. Though I had never heard of the company before, maple is a flavor I enjoy and I thought it would be fun to create a few recipes using their products.
maple seasoning and maple flakes, I hemmed and hawed for awhile about what I could do with one of the other. That is, until I realized it was a no-brainer: scones! I've been on a major scone kick lately, whipping them up for weekend brunches or mid-week snacks. In addition to adding maple flakes to the batter and sprinkling them on top, I also used maple syrup in the batter. In fact, the syrup was the only sweetener in this recipe, making these a little more guilt-free! The maple flavor was fairly subtle, so if you want the taste to come through more, I recommend adding an addition 2 tbsp of maple syrup, or including some maple extract.
