Stuffed Vanilla Pear Jam Scone Recipe
As soon as I tasted this batch of Pear Vanilla Jam I couldn't wait to make these Stuffed Vanilla Pear Jam Scones. For some reason I thought wow this jam would taste great inside a scone.
'm not joking. I really did think that after I tasted it for the third time. And I have never had a stuffed scone in my life so this would be a kitchen adventure for me.

How to Make Stuffed Vanilla Pear Jam Scones
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking power
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 sticks chilled butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 vanilla beans
- vanilla sugar
Pour the buttermilk into a small bowl. Split and scrap the vanilla bean into the buttermilk. I love the fresh vanilla flavor vanilla beans add so I threw the beans into the buttermilk after scraping the luscious goodness from them. Let the vanilla beans steep in the buttermilk while preparing the dough.
Sift all the dry ingredients into a medium sized bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces. Using a pastry cutter cut the butter into the flour mixture until you have a coarse crumbly mixture.

It turned out not to be a good idea to leave it in. If you do decided to leave the bean in grind it up first. I had to pull the pieces out as I ate the scones.
