Ingredients for the vanilla scones

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon aluminum‐free baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands Sea Salt
2 tablespoons organic cane sugar
5 tablespoon European sweet cream, unsalted butter, cold and cut into chunks
1 1/2 cups organic heavy cream
1 tablespoon Spice Islands Vanilla Extract

Ingredients for vanilla bean glaze

3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 cup organic whole milk
1 whole Spice Islands Bourbon Vanilla Bean
1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands Sea Salt

Directions for the scones
  1. Combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter to coat the pieces with the flour. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the heavy cream and the vanilla extract. Stir together to infuse.
  3. Add the vanilla and cream mixture. Fold everything together, being careful not to overwork the dough.
  4. Form large mounds out of the dough; about 1/4 cup of dough equals 1 scone.
  5. Arrange them on a parchment‐lined baking sheet and bake in a 400‐degree oven for 13‐16 minutes, or until the top just barely turned golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Let them cool completely before glazing.
Directions for the vanilla bean glaze
  1. Split the vanilla bean in half and scrape out the seeds.
  2. Combine the milk and vanilla bean seeds in a medium bowl. Whisk the ingredients together.
  3. Add the sifted powdered sugar to the vanilla milk mixture, along with the salt, and combine until it’s completely smooth.
  4. Drizzle the glaze on top of the scones and let set for at least 30 minutes before serving.
