Gluten-Free Comfort Food



The blizzard was raging outside when I woke up this past Saturday morning. So I did what any normal person who was going to be stuck in the house for 24 hours would do – I started cooking. Comfort food. I planned out a day of slow-cooked food that would fill the house with wonderful aromas. Ahhh- there’s nothing like the promise of a delicious dinner at the end of a long hard day of binge watching shows on Netflix.

But first- breakfast. And not just yogurt and fruit. I wanted something warm. Something baked fresh- just for me. Scones.

Then came the tricky part. Along with my desire for scones came my desire to be on a warm tropical island somewhere. Coconut. So there it was. I took a scone recipe from my new cookbook and doctored it up to create ----- Coconut Pecan Scones. Crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside. And the subtle, sweet tastes of coconut and pecan to brighten up my morning. Now it didn’t matter that our governor had called for a state of emergency and no one was allowed to be on the road. I was a happy snow-bound camper. I put on a pot of coffee.

This recipe creates twelve delicately sized scones. You can eat just one, but they’re enticing enough that even the most careful eaters might find themselves going back for more. If you have any left, you’ll be happy to know that they freeze well. And they taste almost as good as new when reheated in a preheated 350ºF oven.
