Buttery Scones

Prep Time: 5 minutes

cook time: 15 minutes

yield: 8 scones

While I was in high school and college, I worked at two different coffee shops: maybe that’s where my love of baking came about. Both places served amazing scones, but they were totally different. In high school I was taught to make European scones, which are lighter, drier, and not very sweet and taste awesome dipped in espresso. In college I was taught to make drop scones, which are more “Americanized” and much sweeter. This recipe makes the sweeter, denser type—more of a drop scone. I hope you enjoy them!

2 cups blanched almond flour

½ cup Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener or equivalent amount of liquid or powdered sweetener

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon fine sea salt

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, frozen

½ cup unsweetened cashew milk or heavy cream 1 large egg

Seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean , or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the almond flour, powdered sweetener , baking powder, and salt. Cut the butter into ½-inch squares, then use your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients. When you are done, the mixture should still have chunks of butter.

In a small bowl, whisk the cashew milk, egg, and liquid sweetener until blended. Using a fork, stir the milk and egg mixture into the flour mixture until large clumps form. Use your hands to press the dough against the side of the bowl, forming 8 balls.

Place the balls of dough on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Bake until golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool on the pan for at least 5 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Store extras in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat on a baking sheet in a preheated 350°F oven for 5 minutes or until warmed through.
