Ingredients

For the Glaze

Instructions

  • 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. 

Notes

  • I forgot to put the glaze on the scones before the picture :P But you should totally do that!
