Laird Cranberry Orange Scones

Laird Cranberry Orange Scones

Servings: 8 scones


2 cups organic all purpose flour (or use your favorite gluten-free baking product)

4 tsp baking powder

1 tsp sea salt

3 tbsp Organic Coconut Sugar

1/2 cup cold coconut oil

2 tbsp zest of orange 

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup dried orange pieces

Optional: ½ cup pecans or walnuts

1/4 cup Laird Superfood Unsweetened Creamer 

Juice from 1 zested orange

Approximately 1/4 cup room temperature water


1 cup Laird Superfood Original Creamer

Juice from ½ orange

1 tbsp unsweetened plain greek yogurt (or coconut yogurt, add just enough to create an icing consistency and then use as a glaze)

Dried orange pieces for garnish



STEP 1:  Preheat oven to 425°F

STEP 2:  In mixing bowl combine first four ingredients then cut in cold cold coconut oil with a pastry cutter till it resembles a crumbly texture. 

STEP 3:  Mix in zest of orange, dried cranberries, dried orange pieces (leave a few for garnish) and chopped nuts (optional). 

STEP 4:  In a separate bowl combine 1/4 cup Laird Superfood Unsweetened Creamer, juice from one (1) of the zested oranges and room temperature water and mix to make one (1) cup of orange coconut milk. 

STEP 5:  Add this to the flour mixture and gently combine and mix until a soft dough forms.  Note that scone dough turns out better when it’s handled less, so do not over mix or knead the dough. 

STEP 6:  Turn the dough onto a floured surface and gently flatten with the palm of your hand, fold it over, flatten a little, fold it over—repeat four or five times (this is to build layers).

STEP 7:  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set the folded dough in the center. Gently flatten the dough and shape into a round disk about 1 ½ inches thick.  Flour a knife and cut the dough in 1/8ths (like cutting a pie). Gently slide knife under each cut piece to separate the slices.

STEP 8:  Put onto middle rack of oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.  Remove and set onto a cooling rack.  Glaze, top with chopped dried orange pieces and enjoy!
