PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIE SCONE

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE SCONES:
2 1/4 cups gluten free flour (or you can use oat flour, spelt flour, whole wheat flour)
1/4 cup coconut oil, COLD
1 tb baking powder
1/4 cup coconut sugar
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3/4 cup pumpkin purée
1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
FOR THE GLAZE:
1 cup organic powdered sugar
3 tb maple syrup
1 tb non-dairy milk
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice


You guys wanted pumpkin scones, I present you the PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIE SCONE. I did a cookie-scone combo because personally I feel like scones are always a little dry and I’m not a huge fan! And I like the chewiness of a cookie. so marry the two, you get a cookie scone—that flaky, scone-like outside and a soft, cookie-like inside. They are vegan and gluten free, with a maple sugar glaze on top!

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients for the scones.
Next, add the cold coconut oil and mix everything with a spoon.
The mixture will be chunky because the coconut oil is hard and that’s exactly what you want!!!
Next add the pumpkin purée and non dairy milk, and form ball of dough.
Use a cookie scoop or a spoon, and form 12-16 cookie-scones on the cookie sheet.
Bake for 13-15 minutes, until the edges are golden.
While the cookie-scones are baking, make the glaze. add glaze ingredients into a bowl and whisk together.
It will be thick.
Once the cookie-scones are done, let them sit for about 10 minutes and then scoop some of the glaze onto each one.
Eat and enjoy!
Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to one week.
