makes 16 scones

3 1/4 cups flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cups cold butter
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
course sugar for sprinkling
maple glaze (recipe below)

Preheat oven to 425. In large bowl combine dry ingredients. Cut in butter until it forms coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla. Fold in bacon crumbles. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently. Divide in half and pat into 7 inch round circles. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Cut into 6 or 8 wedges. Bake at 425 for 12-14 minutes. Top with maple glaze.

Maple Glaze
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
drop of water
1 cup powdered sugar

Combine syrup, vanilla and powdered sugar and stir until combined. Based on the consistency of the glaze, add water one drop at a time and stir – if you accidentally add too much, just add a bit more powdered sugar. Continue to stir until desired consistency is reached. Pour over scones!
