2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
2-1/2 tbsp. butter, cold
2 tbsp. maple syrup

1/2 cup chopped pecans

For glaze:

~Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

~Place oatmeal in blender and pulse until the mixture becomes a ground meal. Place in a large mixing bowl. Add flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder. Cut in butter with a pastry blender.

~In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, egg, half and half, and maple extract. Pour into flour mixture and stir until combined. Do not overmix.

~Turn out onto a lightly-floured surface. Knead pecans into dough. Shape and flatten dough into an 8-inch round. Cut into 8 wedges. Place wedges on prepared baking sheet.
