Maple Walnut and Brown Sugar Scones

3 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup brown sugar packed

1 teaspoon pure vanilla
2/3 cup milk or light cream

3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

1/4 cup brown sugar packed

Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a double-up baking sheet (two sheets stacked together) with parchment paper.

In a food processor, place flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Pulse to combine.

Add butter and pulse to cut or break butter into flour mixture.

Pulse to make a sandy mixture.

Place mixture in a large bowl.

Add walnuts and oatmeal.

Make a well in center, add maple syrup, vanilla and most of milk.

Stir with a fork to make a soft dough.

Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead briefly to make a cohesive mass, adding a bit more milk if required if dough seems too dry.

Shape into two rounds about 3/4 inch thick.

Cut into five wedges each.

Place on baking sheet. Brush each with melted butter, then drizzle with some maple syrup and brown sugar.

Bake until browned 15-18 minutes.
