If you are craving something slightly sweet for breakfast or an afternoon snack, these buttery scones are for you! Quick and simple to make, these einkorn scones with vanilla glaze are sure to impress. They are perfect for any occasion! You can take these along to a get-together or just enjoy them at home with your family.
If you are new to baking with einkorn flour, please read my article The Beginner’s Guide to Using Einkorn Flour. There are numerous benefits to using this flour. Many people who suffer from gluten intolerance find that they are able to digest einkorn, without the same negative side effects they would normally have from eating white or wheat flour. I almost exclusively use einkorn flour in all my baking and cooking. Not only is this flour easy to digest, it also has a light, rich flavor to it which goes well in this slightly-sweet recipe.
I’m not normally one to love sweet treats, but these scones are amazing! They are versatile in that you can add almost anything to them. I made a vanilla glaze for this recipe, but you can also add fruit, nuts or chocolate chips into them or as a topping. I’m generally a savory kind of girl, so I like that they aren’t too sweet. These scones pair perfectly with a delicious coconut milk latte. Try out this recipe, you won’t be disappointed!
Vanilla Cream Einkorn Scones
- 3 cups all-purpose einkorn flour
- 1/4 cup sugar

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Cut the cold butter into small pieces and add to flour mixture. Mix together with your hands until it is well incorporated.
Pour half and half into the bowl and knead together until the flour has been absorbed.
Place dough between two pieces of floured parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll into a circle approximately 3/4 inch thick. Cut the dough into 8 triangle pieces.
Line a baking sheet or stone with parchment paper and place scones on it at least 1 inch apart. Bake for approximately 18 minutes.
While the scones are baking, mix together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Set aside and drizzle on the scones when they have cooled.
