Scratch Catering Services Presents: Vanilla Bean Glaze
Mix confectioners’ sugar 2 cups to start and water; add 1 scrapped vanilla bean paste per batch. Add just enough water to create a semi-thick royal icing and toss scone in glaze to coat. remove scone once coated on all sides with a fork *Hint allow scone to dip completely before beginning next. Allow to set on a cooling rack lined with parchment. If you run out of glaze add more sugar and water to bowl and stir into previous consistency. There will be enough vanilla bean seeds to still flavor the additional glaze.
