  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 2 large eggs
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup fresh cranberries, chopped

For the Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup powdered erythritol
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

Instructions:

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, granulated erythritol, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Cut in Butter: Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the cold, cubed butter into the dry mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

  6. Shape the Scones: Transfer the dough onto the prepared baking sheet and shape it into a circle about 1-inch thick. Cut the circle into 8 equal wedges.
  7. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for about 18-20 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown and cooked through.
  8. Prepare the Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together powdered erythritol and fresh orange juice to make the glaze.
  9. Glaze and Serve: Once the scones have cooled slightly, drizzle the glaze over the top. Allow the glaze to set before serving.
