Cranberry Scones for Supper

It’s Summer. I don’t want to cook. I want snacks…. And I want scones!

There is a family recipe for orange-cranberry scones that I have pined for since going gluten free, and haven’t come close to finding a recipe I could use. But TODAY is the day to recreate them in a gluten free fashion. For dinner. There are no rules for “meals” in the Summertime!! didn’t you know that?

Normally I would mix my own “all purpose flour” – but I found the GF Pantry at my regular grocery store and couldn’t wait to try it!!

It worked. I now have scones for tea. YAY

==========

Glazed Cranberry Scones

  • 1 + 1/2 C Gluten Free Pantry -GF-all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/3 C Baker’s sugar
  • 1 T baking power
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 C palm shortening
  • 1/2 T golden flax meal + 2 T HOT water = 1/2 egg
  • 1/2 C hemp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C dried cranberries

Stir all this together lightly, and pat out in circle on parchment paper/baking sheet.

Cut in 1/4’s and then into smaller triangles – separate them on baking sheet slightly.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until just beginning to brown.

Let them cool slightly, and drizzle with glaze. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Scones.

============

Glaze:

  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • some sort of liquid

Add orange juice, coffee, milk, water, whatever you would like – to suit yourself.
Mine ended up like a soft frosting. How drippy and drizzly it is depends on what you want. Go crazy. Make it the way you like it. Really.Craisins are gluten free!
