+[GFSF cranberry, orange, pecan scones]+

Atticus and I sit everyday and read at 6am.  It's quiet here at that hour.  Today a soft snow was falling and the fireplaces all provided a comfy warmth.  Suddenly I missed those Christmas muffins I used to make!  And then I remembered...at Christmas this year I made a grainfree and sugarfree scone version adapted from Elanas pantry.  Hooray!

I typically whip some whipping cream with a splash of grade B maple syrup to serve alongside these.  They are not too sweet, so add a bit more agave if you are more of a sweet scone lover.

Hope you enjoy them!
