Author Notes: These are a small modification from my own recipe, mainly a little heavier on the oats and using pecans. The added bite is just about perfect.Brian Coppola

Directions

  1. Line a baking pan with parchment.
  2. Mix together the 6 dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3. blend in the eggs, butter, cream, and extracts, and stir well to bring the dough together
  4. I use a wooden Chinese Mooncake mold for these scones. You can do the standard thing: divide the dough into two discs, about 5 inches across, and cut into sixths.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 325F.
  6. prepare the topping by adding the extracts to the melted butter and then add enough powdered sweetener to get a nice paste; add the cream and then more sweetener to a smooth consistency
  7. remove the baked scones to a cooling rack, and after just a few minutes, spread with the topping and let everything cool down
  8. wrap individually in Saran and keep in a airtight container in the refrigerator
