    You stated that there would be 10 berry recipes. I only got the strawberry shortcake recipe. Can you tell me where I can find the others? Thanks

      It’s a tiny amount (and it’s fresh, not concentrated)- so doesn’t add much carbs to the strawberries in fact. You can always just do the orange zest if you prefer (or use an extract, or skip it). xo

    I made these to take as scones on a work trip this week. Doubled the orange zest and had to reduce the temperature to 400C for some reason but they are GREAT! They taste and feel exactly like a whole wheat scone. Way to go on the culinary science! Finally found a keto cook that knows what homemade food should taste like and doesn’t just get super excited over vegetable soup with chicken. (seriously) Thank you!

    Thank you,

  4. Paola!

    These were SO delicious! We just enjoyed them for dessert and will be able to have them again for 2 more days! Yay!
    I had one issue, which I believe occurred due to 2 things (user error no doubt).
    1. I put these on parchment, on a flat baking sheet (not rimmed).
    2. I may have brushed on too much melted butter before baking.
    The butter rolled right off the top and down to the bottom of my oven! You should have seen the smoke in my house, LOL! We had to open up all the windows and turn on fans at the doorways! There was smoke pouring from my windows, it had me in such laughter! I’m surprised the neighbors didn’t call the fire department. I’m a seasoned cook and cake baker at that and I have never had anything like that happen. In my “flour” days I always added a lot of butter to my biscuits and baked them on a flat sheet, so I can only assume that the brushing must have done the trick…perhaps it doesn’t soak in as readily to these flours??
    At any rate, after some time life was back to normal, and we thoroughly enjoyed this treat! 🙂 Next time…rimmed sheet for me! 😉

      OMG LOL Kathy! Thank you for sharing your story, because aside from a good laugh it also makes for a great warning! And definite yes on less butter, as keep in mind that the grain free flours are already super fatty so they don’t absorb too much fat readily. But so happy you guys still loved them! 🙂

      • Ate them for 3 days straight, and, of course I will be making them again very soon, as I need to have a “do over”, lol….sans smokey home! 🙂
        I wonder if it needs the brushed butter at all? Perhaps a brushing after I remove from the oven? Your thoughts?

    These look amazing! Quick question, is the apple cider vinegar used just if you use coconut cream instead of sour cream or is it to be used regardless of which cream? Thanks!

    • Paola says:

      Thank you Sarah! You use it regardless (just need to add a little extra with the coconut milk!) xo!

    Hi! I’m hoping your shortcake will be a lovely scone type deal that I can play with! Are the nutritional values including the strawberries and cream or just the cake itself? Thanks!

    • Paola says:

      Just for the shortcake Lulu, as in my experience it’s best to leave the values for the strawberries ‘n cream to you guys (when I used to post recipes with the add-ins there were endless commends for ‘just the shortcake/biscuit/etc’. And def work as scones xo!
