"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

3 C flour
C cold butter
1 C chopped nuts (I used pecans)
1/3 C heavy cream (I used whole milk)
1 T baking powder
2/3 C real maple syrup
teaspoon salt

1. In food processor, combine flour, nuts, salt and baking powder.
2. Add butter in chunks and process until it looks like course meal.
3. Whisk the syrup and cream together and pour into processor. Mix until it holds together into a soft dough.
4.Turn out onto floured surface and knead gently. Roll out into a 1 -2 inch thick square. Cut into 9 squares and then cut each square in half diagonally to form 18 scones.
5. Place 2 inches apart on an oiled and floured baking sheet. Brush with maple syrup and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. They are done when they feel somewhat firm to the touch. Cool on rack before serving.
