Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cranberry Scones With Nutmeg Glaze
These gluten-free pumpkin cranberry scones are soft, buttery and finished with the most delicious nutmeg glaze. In this recipe, I have also added cranberries which makes these fall scones extra tasty. These pumpkin cranberry scones are undoubtedly my favourite fall snack. I love making scones because they are easy. In this recipe, I made them in a pie dish. So, instead of forming a circle and then cutting the dough into separate wedges, I baked them in a pie dish. So, less mess, super easy, and they turned out perfect. I wanted to add a glaze to this gluten-free scone, one that compliments the pumpkin flavour. So I made a nutmeg buttery glaze because it highlights the pumpkin flavour. If you don’t want to use a glaze, don’t worry, they are so good without it, especially warm right out of the oven.
What is a scone? First, it is British and more often made with flour, sometimes oats and is slightly sweetened and sometimes glazed. What is the difference between a scone and a biscuit? There is only one ingredient that separates the two, and it is the egg. The traditional English scone is round and not triangular, is dense and served with afternoon tea with jam and clotted cream. In America, we have adapted the scone to a biscuit which is lighter and fluffier. Biscuits are usually served with savoury dishes such as soups and stews. What I love about scones you can be creative with the recipe. For sweet scones, you can add dried fruits, fresh berries, pumpkin, sweet potatoes or crisp apples. Savoury scone variations include cheese, bacon, ham, onions, chives, sun-dried tomatoes, and herbs.
In today’s recipe, I included millet flour. Millet, technically a seed although it is often called a grain because of its grain-like consistency, is an excellent option in gluten-free baking. It has a very slight nutty taste. This ancient seed can increase energy, boost your immune system and improve muscle and nerve health. This tiny seed is packed with protein, and minerals such as manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, iron and zinc. Now you see why I love this pumpkin cranberry scone!
