The Creative Princess: Recipe Review - PW's Vanilla Bean Scones

Recipe Review - PW's Vanilla Bean Scones

Ooooh Vanilla Scones.  I just love Vanilla Bean Scones!  Seriously drool every time I even think about them.

My love for Vanilla Bean Scones started at Starbucks a few years ago.  I was scared to try to make my own because well, I had only had them from Starbucks and I did not want my love for them to be tainted by a bad recipe.

Oh!  My!  Gosh!  Am I ever so glad I tried this recipe!  It is very easy and, in great PW fashion, she walks you through all of the steps with ease.  The one thing I did not do was cut the scones small enough the first time.  No biggie though, this gave me a little extra scone to love.  The only other thing I would do next time is make my glaze a bit thicker.  I followed her recipe to a "T" but I would add a little less salt to the dough and a bit more powdered sugar to the glaze next time.

Oh!  Also!  The very first thing I did was scrape the vanilla beans into the cream and let it sit for a while, in the recipe PW recommends letting it sit for about 15 minutes, I let mine set about 20-25 minutes.  I also added the vanilla beans to the milk for the glaze as soon as I put my first batch of scones in the oven.  I put the vanilla bean milk in an air-tight container and let it sit in the fridge until I was ready to use it.  This made it EXTRA vanilla-y.  YUM!

I purchase my vanilla beans from IndriVanilla.
