Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, swerve, baking powder and swerve. Make a well in the dry ingredients.
Add eggs and beat in the well, then pour in heavy whipping cream, melted butter and orange extract. Stir until smooth. Stir in slivered almonds.
Place the dough onto the parchment paper on the cookie sheet. Using your hands pat out a round loaf. Cut into 8 wedges and push the pieces apart a little so they don’t all bake into one big circle.
Bake for 25 minutes until golden. At the end of the cook time, turn off the oven and leave the scones in the oven for another 10-15 minutes.
To make the Glaze: Microwave the butter, cream cheese and powdered swerve for 30 seconds –1 minute. Mix well with a fork until the butter and cream cheese are dissolved, and you have a smooth glaze. If your glaze is still lumpy, reheat in 10 second increments, stirring in between with a fork until you get a smooth glaze.
Drizzle over the scones and serve.
- I forgot to put the glaze on the scones before the picture :P But you should totally do that!
