Tasty Gluten & Dairy Free Scones – Cinnamon

  • 2 – ¾ Cup 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour (Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 Tbs Baking Powder
  • ¾ tsp Salt
  • 1/8-1/4 C Morena Pure Cane Sugar (Zulka brand)
  • ½ Cup Earth Balance – Non-Dairy Butter ½ – 2/3 Cashew Milk (more during dry seasons ½ + TBS worked in Mi Spring)
  • 1TBS Honey
  • 2 Eggs
  • Mixed Ingredients – Butterscotch, 60+ Cocoa Chips, Dried Baking cranberries, nuts of choosing.  (I used the first 3)

  1. Sift dry ingredients into mixing bowl (I used a metal strainer and sifted the dry ingredients)
  2. Cut Butter into wedges and cut into dry ingredient mixture – It’s okay to have larger pieces – Try not to over combine
  3. Add your fun chocolates, dried fruits,  and/or nuts. 
  4. In a separate bowl Whisk eggs then add other wet ingredient together until fully blended.
  5. Add ¼ mixture of wet mixture into the dry combining and folding dry with the wet.  Continue slowly adding wet ingredients until fully combined creating a ball. 
  6. Using silicon baking mat or parchment paper line a cookie sheet and sprinkle with GF flour.
  7. Drop ball of dough onto the pan working dough only a few more times.  Dough may get sticky so work quickly or add a little flour.
  8. Pat down mixture to about ½ inch thick circle should be 6-8” in diameter.
  9. Push to form the sides and place in the freezer for 30min to harden the butter before baking
  10. Pre-heat oven to 400-425 degrees depending on oven type and settings
  11.  Take dough out of freezer and cut using a pizza cutter or sharp knife into 6 triangular pieces
  12.  Using a flat utensil separate scone pieces from the bottom of the paper or pad and separate about 1-2”
  13. Bake for 16-24min  –  I start with 16 min and then rotate the sheet at 16 and add 3-5 minutes based on the look of the dough.  This took 24 minutes with the earth balance alternative.

Notes:

My first recipe was made with full-unsalted butter and coconut whipping cream. Coconut whipping cream is in a can found in the baking isle.  It was really good too.  I didn’t have the whipping cream for this recipe and I used earth balance the second and I used cashew milk and these still turned out really good.  Be careful not to over mix the butter in the flour and the liquid ingredients until just combined.  I also added organic  sugar the first recipe and 2nd recipe added honey and 50% less sugar.   Add the goodies like nuts and chocolate or fruit pieces before the wet ingredients.

Alternatives:

Butter: Earth Balance for Butter or visa versa

Milk, ½ & 1/2 or condensed milk: Cashew Milk, coconut milk (canned if possible), or coconut whipping cream (yum)
