I love serving these Maple Glazed Jalapeño Scones to friends during Sunday brunch. These scones are delicately fluffy with specs of green that pops from the fresh Jalapeño that wonderful compliments the warm maple glaze that drizzles on top. Make your next holiday breakfast — or afternoon coffee — really special with these sassy and sweet treats!

Maple Glazed Jalapeño Scones

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Sassy and sweet treats!


  • 1 cup jalapeños, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter, frozen
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (see notes)



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine and beat together the chopped jalapeños, sour cream, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Set aside.
  3. In a larger bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  4. Add frozen butter to food processor and grate frozen butter. A grater works just as well.
  5. Toss the grated butter into the flour mixture and combine with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  6. Combine wet ingredients to dry mixture and toss together with a firm rubber spatula until everything appears combined and moist.
  7. Place 1/4 cup size dough balls onto your baking sheet.
  8. Brush scones with milk.
  9. Bake scones for 25 minutes or until lightly golden and cooked thoroughly through.
  10. Once baked, remove from oven and allow to cool while you prepare the maple glaze.

Maple Glaze

  1. Add powdered sugar and heavy cream into mixing bowl.
  2. Blend until both are really well incorporated.
  3. Add maple syrup.
  4. Mix until fully combined.
  5. Drizzle maple glaze onto each scone, serve, and enjoy!


  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Be sure to allow your dairy ingredients to reach room temperature. Room temperature ingredients not only combine more effortlessly (no over-mixing needed) but they also trap air so much better. This trap air will expand and produce a fluffy texture during your baking process.
  • Prepared Pan: There will always be the "next best way to prepare your pan" article. Simply put however, the most effective way i find in my kitchen is a light rub of shortening around the sides, parchment paper on the bottom of the pan (for majority of baking pans), & a very light dusting of flour (cocoa powder for chocolate baked goods) all throughout.
  • If you're looking for a maple syrup substitute, try this recipe with either honey or blue agave.
  • If you want a thinner consistency, add more heavy cream.
  • If you want a thicker consistency, add more powdered sugar.
