Warm & Flaky Glazed Vanilla Scones like Starbucks


Warm & flaky Vanilla Scones drizzled in a delicious Vanilla Glaze, just like Starbucks!


I love coffee, and nothing goes better with it then a warm Glazed Vanilla Scone.  I went to Starbucks the other day and had a Vanilla Scone which was quite delicious!  So of course I wanted to see if I could make them at home and I'm very happy to say that these were a huge success.  I made a batch and within a matter of minutes they were gone with the kids asking for more.  They're not complicated to make and you'll have everything you need right in your pantry.  The glaze makes enough for a drizzle on each scone, but you may want to make a double batch...which is what I did on my second batch because the kids were dipping their fingers into it so much.  These are a delicious accompaniment to coffee or tea and the perfect addition to breakfast, brunch or dessert!
