Mango Scones

I just can't pass up a mango, and they sure have been plentiful in the supermarkets these days. 

This recipe calls for brushing the dough with egg white and sugar, which after baking, gives a nice crunch and sweetness to the top of the scones.

Hot out of the oven, these scones are perfect with a pat of butter. For the leftovers, I split the scones, buttered and grilled them and topped them with Tropical Trio Jam - a combination of mango, passionfruit, and pineapple. Scrumptious!

Mango Scones
2 c flour
3 T brown sugar
1 T baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg
4 T melted butter
2 eggs
1/3 c heavy cream
1 T vanilla
1 mango, peeled and cut into cubes
1 beaten egg white
2 T granulated sugar

Whisk dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, beat 2 eggs; add heavy cream and vanilla and mix until well blended. Add mango to egg mixture. Mix in cooled melted butter. Add dry ingredients into egg mixture and blend gently with a rubber spatula. Do not over-mix. Pat dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet into a round about 1-inch high. Brush beaten egg white onto top of dough and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400° for 20-23 minutes until browned.

    Last week I 'Googled' Mango Scones and your blog came up. I made these and we have munched on them for breakfast and late evening snack. They are not too sweet, yet very satisfying. I've added your blog to my favorites and can't wait to try more of your yummy recipes.
