Makes: 8 servings

 

Ingredients:

Scones:

Icing:

  • 1 oz cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 tbsp cream
  • 1 tbsp powdered Swerve Sweetener
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

Scones:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, 1⁄4 cup of sweetener, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Stir in the egg, melted butter, cream, and vanilla extract until the dough comes together.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons of sweetener with the ground cinnamon. Sprinkle half of this mixture into the dough and mix it in, ensuring it remains a bit streaky.
  5. Turn the dough out onto the prepared baking sheet and pat it into an 8-inch circle. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon mixture on top and cut it into 8 even wedges. Carefully separate the wedges.
  6. Space the wedges evenly around the baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until they are lightly browned and firm to the touch. Remove and let them cool for 5 minutes on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Icing:

  1. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese with the sweetener until well combined. Beat in the cream and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Place the icing in a plastic Ziploc bag and snip off the very tip of one corner. Pipe it decoratively over the cooled scones.
