Grapefruit-Kumquat Scones
I love citrus in desserts and baked goods. I can't wait to steal some kumquats from my friend's tree haha Here's the recipe: "2 teaspoons golden flaxmeal 4 teaspoons hot water 280 grams (about 2 cups) kumquat's all-purpose gluten-free flour 1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces 1 cup heavy cream 2 tablespoons grapefruit juice 2 teaspoons zested grapefruit rind 3/4 cup thinly sliced fresh kumquats powdered sugar and additional grapefruit juice Combine flaxmeal and water in a small bowl; set aside. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut butter into mixture with a pastry cutter or with fingers until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cream and flax slurry to to mixture and stir till just combined. Add grapefruit juice, rind, and kumquats; mix until well combined. Transfer mixture to a baking sheet lined with parchment. Pat dough into a circle, about 1 1/2-inches thick. Freeze dough for 20 minutes. Cut dough into 8 wedges, leaving room between to spread while baking. Freeze again for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 450°. Bake scones for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool. Combine powdered sugar and grapefruit juice to make an icing to your desired consistency. Spread evenly over cooled scones. Top with a slice of kumquat, if desired. Yield: 8 scones."
