yesterday i was in the mood to try making scones using holiday flavors. My son was returning from college and i wanted him to try them. He is supposed to be gluten free as well. Dairy free too!
To make these a great breakfast treat cut in half and put jam on them like a biscuit.
2 cups Jules Gluten free All Purpose flour(TM) i like this flour mix, but other gluten free combinations can be used.
2 Tbs. flaxseed meal
1/4 cup Xylitol (sugar substitute)
2 tsp. gluten-free baking powder
1/2tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
4 Tbs. butter or (Earth Balance shortening )
2 large eggs (or egg substitute like 2 Tbs. flaxseed meal steeped in 6 Tbs. warm water)
1/2cup yogurt, dairy or non-dairy( So Delicious Vanilla coconut yogurt)
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup fresh cranberries
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 400f. whisk together all dry ingredients in a large bottom bowl. cut butter into the dry ingredients using a pastry cutter. stir in the eggs, yogurt and pumpkin.
spoon dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet "drop biscuit" style.
bake for 8-11 minutes, just until the tops are lightly browned. Do not overcook. makes about 15 scones.
