i even cut out little apple stars, just to be cute.
i'm skipping ahead.
let me clarify.
i made gluten-free apple cinnamon scones,
and i added cute lil sugar sprankles....
and i even cut out little apple stars, just to be cute.
NOW you get it, right?
here's the finished product:

and here's the true story behind their creation:
i've been baking and making all sorts of breakfasty stuff for weeks.
i don''t always take pictures anymore,
as the demand is greater than the presentation can withstand-
i.e. hungry everybodies want their tasty bits asap, and there's no photos allowed
when all the faces are full and all the crumbs are flying everywhere......
but sometimes i still find a small second here and there to document
what's going on at the Folk Life & Liberty Fortress.
that's what i do, after all, even if it's no longer the only thing i do, y'know?
gluten-free scones aren't easier to make.
that's the first truth about 'em.
the second is that they cut cleaner, but bake denser, so in the future,
i believe i may have to amend the recipe to allow for more moisture to be included/.
we'll see.
i haven't decided when they'll appear next, anyway,
so there's plenty of brainstorming allowed until then
ANYway, here's what went into these autumnal awesomes.
you decide what you'd like to do about that on your own time:
preheat your oven to 410℉
get a big ol' bowl out, and fill it with the following:
1 cup bob's all-purpose gluten-free baking blend;
1 cup mama's almond flour blend;
1/2 tsp salt;
2 tsp cinnamon;
3 T raw sugar;
3 T tapioca flour;
1/4 cup gf oat flour;
6 T vegan butter;
1 tsp xantham gum;
2 tsp baking powder;
1 tsp baking soda;
3 T vegan creamchee'...
with a pastry cutter, chop all that up thoroughly together, until it's all crumbly.
add in:
1/3 cup unsweetened non-dairy yogurt;
1 large apple, peeled, cored, and cubed into 1/4" chunks;
1/3 cup non-dairy milk + more if necessary, added 1 t at a time, to make a heavy dough.
knead, and fold, and turn the dough, making sure to incorporate all the apples,
and all the flour,
until it's all totally blended, and sticking together.
hand form it into a 1/2" thick rectangle about 6" wide by 12" long,
and cut that in half lengthwise,
and into triangles along each half, until you've got about a dozen-
a few more if you like skinny cuts, and a few less if yo make em fatties-
i don;t know your tastes, so do what you do, neighbors.
i support you in this.
arrange them on a baking tray and sprankle some raw sugar crystals on top.
maybe shake a little cinnamon dust up on there, too.
i mean,
it won't hurt anything if you go a little hard on the flavors, y'know?
it's true.
and if you like being kyoooooooot?
those small apple stars are pretty expert, bro.
just sayin'.
i keep a full complement of cutters on hand for occasion just like this one.
i'm never sad about it.
then get 'em all pretty, and ready, and bake 'em up for twenty or so minutes.
just like that,
you're a radical vegan exxxplosion of excellence,
and you've also got a whole batch of scones to eat.
who wins harder than us?
nobody, obvi.
you're a superstar,
i'm a superstar,
we're a regular (almond)milky way, aren't we?
i think so;
