1/2 cup walnuts, chopped, 2 ounces **

Cinnamon Walnut Scones


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking liner. Mix topping ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. In medium bowl, whisk baking powder and cinnamon into Carbquik. Cut in butter and cream cheese until it resembles small peas. Add nuts. In separate bowl, mix milk, egg, sweetener and vanilla. Add wet mixture to dry and stir just until dough comes together. Dough will be sticky.

Turn dough out onto surface lightly dusted with Carbquik. Dust top of dough with bake mix and gently pat to 1-inch thick. Cut with 2-inch biscuit cutter and carefully place on baking sheet. Gently pat out scraps of dough and cut out to make remaining scones. Brush tops with the 1 tablespoon cream. Sprinkle with topping mixture, dividing all of it amongst the scones. Bake at 400ยบ 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm, with butter, clotted cream or mascarpone cheese. Mock Clotted Cream also makes a wonderful topping for these.

* Do not use salted butter or the scones will be too salty.
** Any kind of nuts can be used. I made mine with pecans.
