Maple Walnut Scones

How about a maple walnut scone and a cup of maple tea today?  My leopard print pumpkin was mod podged my me several years ago, by using leopard print tissue paper.  It looks pretty with my quilt-as-you-go minky throw that I made about 10 years ago.  It was a fun project, and was pre-cut in fabrics that I chose. 

The little cottage girl teapot was one that my mom gave me, and she had found it at a thrift store. Isn't it sweet?  It's elevated on a teacup and saucer.  The maple tea was given to me from a friend, who visited Canada (before Covid-19!!).

This is a Johnson Brothers Olde English Countryside teacup.

This pretty brown transferware plate is called Harvest, by Clarice.

My grandson, Riley, turned 17, and completed three birthdays in one week of grandchildren!

Maple Walnut Scones

Maple Walnut Scones

The original recipe made 24 mini scones or 12 large. I cut the recipe in half.


  • For the Scones:
  • 1 and 3/4 cups flour
  • heaping 1/3 cup toasted walnuts, chopped finely (save some extra for garnishing)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter (I used salted), cold, and cut into pats
  • 1/2 cup cold milk
  • 2 and 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla (maple flavoring would be good, but I didn't have any)
  • For the glaze:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla (or maple flavoring)



I like to freeze the unbaked scones and then pull out what I need and bake them fresh. You may allow a few extra minutes of baking time, if needed.

  1. Why yes, Kitty, a maple walnut scone and a cup of maple tea would go down very well, thank you. Such a pretty teacup and plate and the teapot that your dear mum gifted you is very sweet. Love the pumpkin, and the throw looks lovely and warm and cosy.

  2. Wow, Kitty- you sure get a nice rise on your scones. They're gorgeous. Your tea setting is wonderful - well put together. And you are so talented making quilts, baking, hodge-podging (is that how we're supposed to say that? haha)

    Happy bday to your grandson and all those who celebrated so close together. Our big month was December. Groan. What a month back in the day!

    Have a fabulous week. Hugs.

  3. I love the leopard print pumpkin and blanket! During one of my pandemic stress-induced online shopping, I ordered a leopard print sherpa hoodie. It's so warm and comfy!

    What's the tea company of the maple tea? I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't even broken the seal of the maple tea that was part of my fall tea hauls. You know you have too many teas when...

  4. Kitty, Your walnut scones looks delicious and I would love to join you for one and a cup of tea! I love your sweet teapot gifted by your mom along with your pretty brown transferware. I'm wild about your quilted throw and leopard pumpkin too! I can't believe how grown up Riley is! ♥

  8. Oh Kitty - your scones are beautiful! I can almost smell them. Love all the photos! Everyone that knows me knows I'm wild about jungle prints! =) I just stopped at a local maple syrup 'shack' this week and bought some local honey too. What a treat - such great health benefits too. Thanks much for sharing. What a birthday week your family had - I'm sure that's tons of fun for the birthday folks. =)

  9. Maple walnut scones are some of my very favorites. Your recipe and mine are almost the very same. I always enjoy seeing the beautiful dishes and tea pots and tea cups that you feature. These are so November. Riley is one handsome kid. Hope his birthday was a happy one.
