Vanilla Cream Einkorn Scones

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!

    These look really tasty! I have never heard of this flour before. I’m going to have to look it up. I usually use King Arthur all purpose or almond flour.

    Your logo is gorgeous! I have only recently read about this kind of flour because I had to write an article on wheat and gluten for work. It’s so interesting that there are flours like this (and even sometimes sourdough) that people with gluten intolerance can still handle. These look incredible!!

    Hi…don’t mean to sound critical……but we can all see how they “look” or how the recipe “sounds”. Has anyone actually made these who can offer a usable comment or recommendation? Thanks in advance.

      I have a batch in the oven right now. The basic recipe is great on its own. I always start with that, and mix in things sometimes. Today it’s dried cranberries. Other times, I mix in lemon zest, and use lemon juice in place of milk for the glaze.

    Out of all the star ratings only two people said they actually made these which I find isn’t a fair way to rate a recipe…However I did bake them and they are very good!! I followed the measurements and used my food processor for blending the dry and cutting in the butter (European works great) while doing the rest by hand. I made mine a little taller and brushed them with milk and sprinkled some rapadura. Very creamy scones.
