As far as scones go, the maple oat nut scone at Starbucks is a superstar. At first I thought that we could use real maple syrup or even the maple-flavored syrups that are more commonly used on pancakes today (they are actually corn syrup-based and artificially-flavored). But I found that these syrups add too much moisture to the dough, creating something more like cake batter than the type of dough we want for a dense, chewy scone. I found that the caramel-colored imitation maple flavoring stocked near the vanilla extract in your supermarket gives this scone—and the icing—the strong maple taste and dark caramel color that perfectly matches the flavor and appearance of the real thing.

I thought they turned out a little too dry so I will probably drop the heat next time and reduce the baking time. The taste was great and very easy to make.

Great scones. My neighbor ate 3 and asked for the recipe.
