Gluten-Free Pumpkin Scones

The secret to these gluten-free pumpkin scones is grating the butter while frozen.



Step: 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step: 2

Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves in a large bowl. Grate frozen butter into flour mixture and blend with a pastry blender until flour is crumbly with pea-sized crumbs.

Step: 3

Combine pumpkin puree, 1/3 cup heavy cream, egg, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Add to the crumb mixture and mix into a soft dough.

Step: 4

Lightly sprinkle counter and hands with flour and turn out dough onto the counter. Shape into a small, 1-inch thick rectangle, slightly smaller than a sheet of paper. Cut rectangle in half using a knife or a pizza cutter, then cut each half into 6 triangles. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with 2 tablespoons heavy cream and sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Step: 5

Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Step: 6

While scones are cooling, combine confectioners' sugar, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice for glaze in a bowl and whip until smooth. Add glaze to a small resealable plastic bag, snip off one corner, and drizzle on top of cooled scones.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as clear bread.

To make this in a breadmaker , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.

A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can start it night before , then finish it off the next day.
