Instructions

Scones
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line cookie sheet parchment paper
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: Swerve, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, salt, and almond flour. Cut in the cold butter pieces with a fork or grate butter over dry mix, and with your fingers, mix butter into mixture until it resembles a course meal. Mix in the chocolate chips and cup of chopped pecans
  3. In a separate medium-sized bowl, combine the pumpkin, egg, milk, and vanilla.
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Fold together until just combined. Gently knead dough a few times.
  5. Split dough into even halves, and shape into two round disks, about 6 inches wide. Cut the disc like a pie into 6-8 pieces (depending on how large you like your scones)
  6. Place on parchment-lined sheet pan. Bake until the surface is set and ledges are lightly browned, and the bottoms of the scone are golden brown, about 22-25 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet.
Maple Glaze
  1. In a small saucepan over medium low heat, melt the Brown Swerve and the butter together, whisking until the sweetener is dissolved. 
  2. Whisk in the Swerve Confectioners, maple syrup, heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract until smooth. Quickly whisk in a pinch of xanthan gum and set aside for a few minutes to let glaze thicken. Drizzle over cooled scones.
Chocolate Drizzle
  1. In a small saucepan over medium low heat, melt the chocolate chips and heavy cream, stirring until smooth.
  2. Drizzle over or dip cooled scones.
  3. If chocolate seizes or becomes dense, add another tablespoon of cream until it becomes smooth again
