Gluten-Free Pecan Streusel Scones

It used to be that I wasn’t much of a scone lover. They were dry and crumbled all over the place. Sound familiar?

“Gluten-free baked goods can be dry and crumbly, but these scones are flaky and moist. It’s a buttery miracle.”

 

My friends and I are playing with ratios again as part of the Gluten-Free Ratio Rally. What’s the Gluten-Free Ratio Rally? We’re a group of food bloggers and cookbook authors committed to baking with ratios. This month’s assignment: scones. Perfect excuse to crack the scone code. Thanks Lauren, aka Celiac Teen, for being our host! Check below for the complete list of bloggers with links to their scone recipes.

Me and my ratio: After playing around in the kitchen with various ratios, this one made me (and my family) the happiest. Feel free to have fun with the ratios. It will depend ever so slightly on the ratio of grains and starches in your gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. Also, just in case, I’ve included cup and spoon measurements if that’s what you’re more comfortable with.

3.5 parts flour
3 parts liquid
1 part fat

Makes: 8


(312g) 2 cups plus 2 teaspoons Silvana’s Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Blend (page 15)
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
(87g) 6 tablespoons frozen unsalted butter, cut into ¼-inch pieces
(275g) 1¼ cups heavy cream, plus more for brushing
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup chopped pecans

1. Position an oven rack in the middle and preheat to 375º. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour blend, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter until coarse crumbs form. Stir in the cream and mix until just combined.
2. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 2 teaspoons flour blend, brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Sprinkle most of the streusel mixture over the dough (reserving the remaining streusel for sprinkling before baking) and mix in.
3. Pat out the dough to form a ½-inch-thick round. Cut into 8 triangles and place the dough about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with cream and sprinkle with the remaining streusel. Bake until golden and puffed, about 25 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.

24 Comments: Gluten-Free Pecan Streusel Scones

Jeanette Said:

What an amazing gluten free scone recipe – love the idea of pecan streusel! I am loving this Gluten Free Rally!

Heather Brandt Said:

Any dairy-free substitute for heavy cream?

Caneel Said:

Pecan streusel anything makes me happy. These look so delicious – and they look almost fluffy! Oh YUM.

Maggie Said:

Silvana these are beautiful! They belong in a gourmet bakery in Paris :) Thanks for including cup measurements too, I have yet to dive into the scale world.

Britt Said:

Whoa, my experience while reading this post was very similar to the feeling one gets when walking past a Cinnabon at the mall. Add in the fact that I’m pretty much obsessed with pecans lately, and it’ll be a miracle if I can keep myself from making these before we finish the glut of scones already our kitchen.

Jenn Said:

What a decadent variation and they look so flaky!! Wonderful job on the scones :)

Kate Said:

Pecan streusel, yes please! The texture looks incredible. This is some great inspiration right here, thank you :)

InTolerantChef Said:

I love pecans, these must taste lovely, yumm…

brooke @B & the boy! Said:

Simple yet decadent. I love these.

Stefanie Said:

Do you have suggestions for making them dairy free?

Jessica Rodriguez Said:
