The Great Harvest Bread Company makes an amazing treat called a scruffin. It is a “scone meets muffin” moist, deliciousness. These pumpkin scones remind me of a scruffin in texture. A wonderful fall or holiday treat! Recipe was inspired by and adapted from the Damn Delicious blog.
2 c Paula’s Gluten Free Flour mixture (Recipe found below)
1 1/2 t xanthan gum
1/3 c brown sugar, packed
2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground cloves
1/2 t ground ginger
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4 t salt
1/2 c chilled butter (one stick), cut into pieces ( To make dairy free: you could try using Spectrum Shortening)
1/2 c pumpkin puree
3 T milk (To make dairy free: substitute with a milk substitute, like Rice Milk
1 T ground flax, whisked with 3 T hot water to make flax gel
2 t vanilla
* Extra gluten free flour for dusting while rolling out.
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare work surface to roll dough on, with wax paper and extra gluten free flour for dusting. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour through salt, whisk together well. Cut in butter (or shortening) using a pastry blender or two forks until it resembles a coarse meal.
3. In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin through vanilla and mix well.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stir well with rubber spatula until a soft dough forms.
5. Place dough on lightly floured work surface. Roll into a rectangle shape about an inch thick. Cut into 8 triangles or 16 if you’d like smaller portions.
6. Transfer cut dough onto baking sheet, 1-2 inches apart. Bake 12-14 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Top with icing.
1 1/2 T milk (To make dairy free: substitute with a milk substitute, like Rice Milk)
Add 1 T milk to powdered sugar and stir together. If it is too dry then add more milk in small increments, until your desired consistency. Drizzle on cooled scones.
