  • These tender scones with a hint of hazelnut can be made extra sweet by adding dried cherries and topping with a hazelnut flavored glaze. Perfect for a special breakfast or brunch, they are best served warm, but will hold for a day or two if needed.
Key Ingredients
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons frozen unsalted butter, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries or cranberries, chopped (optional)
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons Coffee mate® natural bliss® Hazelnut Flavor All-Natural Coffee Creamer, divided
  • 2 teaspoons turbinado or granulated sugar
Make It
Step 1
Adjust oven rack to middle position. Preheat oven to 425° F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2
Combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in large mixing bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cherries, if using.
Step 3
Add 3/4 cup Coffee mate natural bliss Creamer all at once to flour mixture; mix just until combined.
Step 4
Turn dough onto a floured work surface. With floured hands, knead dough just a few times until mixture stays in a ball. Transfer the ball to the prepared baking sheet. Pat into a 7-inch circle, about 3/4-inch thick.
Step 5
Cut dough into 12 wedges; separate the wedges. Brush tops with remaining 2 teaspoons Coffee mate. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
Step 6
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden on top. Slide the parchment onto a wire rack; cool for 10 minutes before serving. Scones are best the day they are made, but will hold for 1-2 days in covered container.
