- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/ 4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 1/ 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/ 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 13 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
- 1 cup milk
- 1/ 3 cup, plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
Preheat the oven to 415°F.
Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir in the oats. Using a pastry cutter, cut 11 tablespoons of butter into the dry ingredients until the butter is about the size of peas. In a small bowl, combine the milk and 1/3 cup maple syrup. Pour the milk and mapl syrup mixture into the flour and butter mixture and fold until just combined.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Gently pat together, careful not to overwork. Pat into a 1 inch thick rectangle and fold in thirds like a letter. Rotate the dough 90 degrees and then repeat this patting and folding process. Repeat once more for a total of 3 sets of folds. Pat the dough out into a 1 inch thick rectangle and use a floured biscuit cutter to cut out rounds of dough. Gently pat together the remnants and cut out more biscuits.
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, melt the remaining butter and maple syrup, stirring to combine. Brush the melted maple butter over the biscuits before baking 12-15 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
