Tea and Gluten-Free Scones

























Gluten-Free Scones
The recipe is based on this one, but it is not exactly the same.


One can't fail with these.  I am not that good of a cook.

First I mix up my flour mixture.

2 1/4 cups of brown rice flour
2/3 cup of potato starch
1/3 cup tapioca flour
1 tsp of xanthan gum

The recipe won't use all of it, so I save the extra flour mix in a container, because I use it for other baked goods.

Grab a big bowl and

cream one stick of butter with a half a cup of sugar with 2 large eggs and a teaspoon of vanilla and 1/3 cup of whole organic milk
then add 2 cups of the pre-made flour mixture
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt

That's it.
 I easily shaped these with my hands into hearts.  The dough is sticky enough.

Preheat the oven to 400 F and bake for 15 minutes.  There is enough butter that the pan does not need to be greased.

When they cooled I sprinkled them with powdered sugar.  Sometimes I add cranberries.

  1. I love scones...they are probably my favorite treat! I don't have to eat gluten free but I DO have to eat sugar free so I have to be creative. I LOVE your sweet cup and saucer. I've never seen one like it. How pretty! Sweet hugs, Diane

  2. We're gluten-free around here most of the time (or I get really sick) and these look so simple! What a yummy treat for Valentine's Day!

  7. Love your heart shaped scones. I usually bake something special for Valentine's, but it just didn't happen this year.

  8. I have not had scones since I had to go gluten free. These look delicious and sound easy enough. I have a box of Gluten Free Pantry's flour mix here and will have to check what they have mixed in; maybe I can use that as my flour mix. Otherwise, I know I keep a few of these others on hand and can easily pick up what I don't have. I will definitely be trying this recipe! : )

    1. Thank you, Kathy. I have jars in which I keep all my flours: potato, brown rice, tapioca, oat, and corn. When I prepare a mix and there is extra, I put it in a big plastic bag and label it.

  10. That Alice cup and saucer is soooo cute!!!!! Thank you for the recipe, one of my best friends is celiac and I love scones. By the way, thank you for the tips you shared with your daughter about keeping the clutter at bay! Especially the part about having a box to store things you're sick of but not sure you want to part with yet. I never thought of that and it was very helpful!

    1. It's fool proof and they don't taste gluten-free.
