Scones. Yum. My friend, Marta, and I LOVE Panera scones, especially the ones with that powdered sugar glaze. They are all sorts of delicious. Unfortunately they are not at all paleo. Consequently, I was forced to make paleo scones for work today.
I tried this recipe for Apple Cinnamon Scones. My workmates thought it turned out tasty, and I agree in general. I think I overbaked them, however. Since they are made with almond flour, they are dark to start with, so it’s very difficult to tell when they are “golden brown.” Usually when I make paleo desserts I end up under baking them, so I erred the other way and cooked these too long. BUT they turned out good enough that I’ve eaten 4 of them since last night. Granted, they are pretty small if you make 16 slices, but still. 🙂 I would definitely make these again, but next time I might add some raisins. I would also like to experiment with making homemade whipped cream. I think that would be fabulous on top of these scones.
But, as with all paleo desserts, I can’t make them often. I end up eating too much of them. And today was a day for overeating – lots of scones, Himalayan dark chocolate salted almonds, and Reese’s Pumpkins. Oh boy.
