•Starbucks Copycat Caramel Scones

click here for original recipe

I didn't have cream or half and half so I made a few adjustments.  I also didn't make the topping I just made a maple glaze and it was great.   The best way to described these scones is a delicious butterscotch pancake... or just fluffy.   My husband and son think they are great.  I didn't follow the directions below... I beat the flour and butter together to see if it made a difference.  I think it did, so next time I will follow the directions and see what happens. 
  • 3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsalted or salted butter (or margarine) (my addition the 2 T butter)
  • 3/4 cup half and half or light whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (if unsalted butter is used)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup milk (for best results use whole milk)
  • 1 1/2 whole milk  (my addition)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup butterscotch baking chips
  • Topping
  • 1/3 cup butterscotch baking chips, fine chopped (use food processor)
  • 1 egg white, slightly beaten
  • Confectioner's (powdered) sugar (optional)
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place flour and butter in a medium mixing bowl, combine with your fingers
  • to a coarse meal consistency. Add sugar, baking powder and salt (if used) combine well. Stir in cream, vanilla and egg,
  • blending well to form a soft dough.
  • Scoop mixture onto baking sheet. Brush tops with beaten egg white; sprinkle ground butterscotch chips over top. Bake
  • until browned - 16-18 minutes.
  • Dust with confectioner's sugar when cool if desired .
