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
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until just beginning to brown.
Let them cool slightly, and drizzle with glaze. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
- 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!
