We love orange anything. We decided to add whole cranberries and semi sweet chocolate chips to these Gluten Free Orange Scones. They are Great! Good without cranberries also.
2 cups Miracle Flour Blend
2 1/2 tsp. truvia (Stevia)
1 Tbl. baking powder
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbl. grated orange peel
1/3 cup cold butter, cut into small chunks
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 Tbl. Coconut milk (to brush on top)
2-3 Tbl. pure cane sugar or sugar crystal(to sprinkle on top)
1 cup cranberries or craisins (if desired)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (if desired)
GLAZE (optional): but recommended
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 Tbl. orange juice
1. In bowl of stand mixer; combine our Miracle Flour Blend, truvia, orange peel, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside. In a small bowl, combine orange juice, cream and egg. Add to flour mixture and stir until a soft dough forms.Add Cranberries and chocolate chips now, if desired.
2. On a floured parchment,fold dough out. Pat dough into an 8-in” circle. Cut into 8-10 wedges. Separate wedges and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Brush tops with coconut milk; sprinkle with sugar.
3. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack.
4. Combine glaze ingredients if desired; drizzle over scones.
