Cinnamon Roll Scones

Early mornings with a latte.

Midday stuff-your-face kinda snack.

Late nights with a cup of tea.

Scones aren’t girlie food. Scones are just plain good. And cinnamon roll scones are tout simplement le meilleur.

So, do it:

  • 2 cups of Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar (cane or coconut)
  • 1 scant tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla powder*
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup yogurt (coconut or soy)
  • 1/2 cup oat milk (Don’t substitute!)

Crunch Topping:

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons softened vegan butter
  • 2-4 teaspoons cinnamon (depending on taste)
  • 1 tablespoon pearl sugar*

Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Oat milk

 

Heat the oven to 400F and grease a cookie sheet or line it with parchment.

Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and vanilla powder in a medium-sized bowl. Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture until the butter is in pea-sized pieces. In a small bowl, whisk the yogurt and the milk together. Make a well in the middle of the flour and butter mixture and pour in the wet ingredients. FOLD the wet and the dry together GENTLY. Gluten free flours make glue quite easily so work quickly and fold the dough only until there are no dry streaks. The dough may look a little crumbly, but if you can squeeze it together and it holds then your dough is perfection.

Turn the dough out onto the cookie sheet. Pat the dough into a 9 inch-ish circle. Leave the edges rough!!! That makes the best scone edge. Cut the scones into 8 triangles WITHOUT moving them from their place on the cookie sheet.

In a small bowl stir together the crunch topping ingredients and spread this mixture evenly over the top of the scone dough.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the topping is crisp and the edges are golden. Cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the glaze by adding 1 teaspoon of oat milk to the powdered sugar until it makes a thick drizzle. Drizzle the drizzle (hehe) in a snail shell pattern over the warm scones and serve.

YUM. YUM. YUM.
