Cranberry Pistachio White Chocolate Scones
Gluten Free Baking is hard. There is no doubt about it. And just when I get in a groove and produce a few finished products, I tank. These scones, while beautiful and delicious, were originally biscotti!
The biscotti would not bind! So I took the half cooked log of flaky dough and bound it with....melted white chocolate. I would post the recipe, but as I will not make these again, I can't suggest that any of you make them either.
Lesson learned - I can not make gluten free biscotti. The end result was tasty, but each "scone" weighed like HALF A POUND!!! They were basically huge DENSE mounds of flour, white chocolate, cranberries, and pistachios.
I will be posting a more successful recipe soon (and my new favorite dessert) - Pistachio Mousse.
