Cranberry Orange Scones

Once again, it’s all Joy the Baker’s fault.  This scone obsession of mine.  When I saw those cute little hand cut squares of Orange Chocolate Buttermilk Scones on her blog, joythebaker.com, I knew I had to make them mine.  And I did.  And then some.

So, here’s the latest in my scone series, gluten free Cranberry Orange Scones.  As you can see, there is a strange “orangeness” on the top of my scones.  That’s because I had a little extra zest leftover and rolled the dough in it.  Feel free to give this a try if you’re big time into the orange zest thing.

Cranberry Orange Scones
  1. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, salt, baking soda, cranberries, chips and zest
  2. In a smaller bowl, combine egg and agave
  3. Mix wet ingredients into dry
  4. Knead dough with hands if necessary to ensure proper distribution of ingredients
  5. Form dough into 2 little circles so that each one is about ½-inch in thick
  6. Cut each circle like a pizza, into 8 slices
  7. Using a metal baking spatula transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet
  8. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes
  9. Serve

As you can see, with white chocolate chips, these scones are not even close to Paleo or Primal.  So, if you’re looking for a healthier treat, substitute the white chocolate with dark chocolate.  Or maybe just experiment with leaving out the chocolate altogether –blasphemy to chocolate lovers, I know!
