Easy Maple Oat Scones with Maple Butter
This easy maple oat scone recipe is perfect for fall! What could be better for the season than sitting on the porch with a loved one, noses cold from the crisp air but bellies warm from such a hearty treat? We simply love autumn–the caress of color on the leaves, the warm sweaters, and especially the touch of spices in teas! These maple oat scones are excellent by themselves, but we prefer them drizzled with maple glaze. Serve them with maple butter for a sweeter treat!
