Vanilla Bean Scones – A delicious baked treat perfect for breakfast with a cup of tea! A crisp vanilla bean scone with a vanilla bean glaze! The perfect easy scone recipe!
Tea has always been a staple in my mornings. My love of tea started at a young when I would have tea-time with my grandmother. She was a big tea drinker and would introduce my to new and exciting varieties of tea I had never even heard of while we would chat and eat scones. It was always such a lovely experience that I still hold dear. I consider that my “Tea Proudly” moment because of how much it still means to me. I always think of her when I have a cup of tea and scones.
Those are the memories I wanted to make a nod to by creating these vanilla bean scones to go with my new favorite tea, Bigelow’s Constant Comment. It’s a black tea with just a touch of orange that is unique and stand-out! Surprisingly, I had never made scones before, I had always gotten them from my local bakery but I was amazed how simple they were to make! This is the perfect easy scone recipe for beginners! I think the vanilla scones disappeared within about an hour, they were a huge hit at my house. The simple, light flavor of the scones complemented the tea wonderfully!
I popped over to my local Walmart to grab a box of Bigelow Constant Comment to go with the vanilla bean scones, it was right in the tea aisle by the other Bigelow teas! It was very easy to find!
Notes on vanilla bean scones recipe
- Don’t have vanilla beans? You can use vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract instead! Sub in 1 tbsp into the scone base and 1 tsp in the glaze instead of the vanilla beans.
- Scones not cooked through all of the way? Cover with aluminum foil and bake up to 5 more minutes. This helps them not brown up too much.
