Starbucks Petite Vanilla Bean Scones Recipe

This at-home Starbucks Petite Vanilla Bean Scones copycat recipe will taste just like the real thing, and your taste buds will thank you for it! This recipe is from Recipe Girl.


For the scones:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons kosher slat
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter (cut into pieces)
  • 1/2 cup cold heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Seeds scraped from one vanilla bean
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pour the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into the bowl of a food processor and whisk to combine.
  • Add the butter and pulse the food processor until the mixture looks coarse. (If you don’t have a food processor, use a pastry cutter to combine all the dry ingredients with the butter until it becomes coarse).
  • With the food processor running on low speed, slowly stream in the cream and vanilla extract.
  • When the dough has gathered into a ball, turn off the food processor and divide the dough into three portions of equal size.
  • Flatten each portion of dough into a disc shape, about 1 1/2 inches thick.
  • Score each disc into 6 triangles with a knife and pull the triangles slightly away from each other (allowing about 1/2 inch in between).
  • Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until the centers are set and the bottoms are slightly golden.


  • In a small bowl, stir the powdered sugar, vanilla bean seeds, and milk together until smooth.
  • Spread a small amount of glaze on top of each scone.
