OMG. I love Starbucks. I used to love all of their delicious treats, but being a vegan doesn’t allow me to eat them anymore. Oh, well. I’ll just make them at home and save money! Sounds like a win-win to me! Lil Sis and I knew we HAD to make these. And so we did.
Starbucks Copycat Scones (vegan and gluten free)
(Adapted from Iowa Girl Eats)
For the scones:
2 cups gluten free all-purpose flour (I like Better Batter)
7 T evaporated cane juice
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup canned (or homemade) pumpkin puree
3 T French Vanilla Silk Creamer
egg replacer equal to 1 egg
6 T earth balance, cold & cubed
For the glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 T French Vanilla Silk Creamer
For the spiced drizzle:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 T French Vanilla Silk Creamer
pinch of pumpkin pie spice
How to make them:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment.
In the bowl of a large food processor combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Pulse to combine. Add the cubed earth balance and pulse until well incorporated and the mixture is the texture of cornmeal.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, creamer and egg replacer. Add to the flour mixture and pulse until just combined. Turn the dough out onto a lightly (gluten free) floured surface and gently knead 4 or 5 times to bring the dough together. Flatten into a circle about 1″ thick. Using a pizza cutter (or knife), cut the dough into 6 pieces.
Place the wedges on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 14 minutes or just until they start turning golden brown. Remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
When the scones have cooled, whisk together the glaze ingredients. Spoon on top of each scone and spread lightly. Let harden for at least 10 minutes. Whisk together the spiced drizzle ingredients and drizzle on top. Let harden completely. (about an hour)
Enjoy with tea or coffee! These keep for 1 day in an airtight container. Makes 6.
Enjoy! You won’t be sorry you made these! 🙂
