blueberry scones that are delightful & gluten free

These blueberry scones are the gluten free version of my friend Amanda’s very simple recipe. We quickly became friends through sharing recipes, while folding clothes, during our retail days.

Favourite Takeaways:

  1. Very versatile and forgiving (as long as you dont over handle the dough)
  2. Can be made without a stand mixer
  3. Freezes wonderfully

I have tried this recipes with a few different berry variations and found that blueberries (fresh or frozen) held up the best. Raspberries were a close second. At any rate, these scones are delightful and bring a little extra to your morning.

alteration notes:

  • Added 1 more egg
  • Used AP gluten-free flour
  • Added vanilla extract

approximate times:

  • Prep: 10 minutes
  • Bake: 15-18 minutes

  6. In a small bowl add egg, milk, cream, vanilla – whisk until thoroughly combined
  7. Transfer the wet mixture to the dry mixture – add with a fork until just moistened
  8. Gently fold in blueberries
  9. Drop the mixture onto a floured surface and roughly shape into an 8 inch circle

further insights:

  • serves 8 medium scones
  • chose a Gluten Free flour with Xanthan Gum
  • also used a pastry cutter to work the butter into dry mixture
  • folded in blueberries with a spatula
  • to avoid a tougher dough, avoid over mixing/handling
  • can be made ahead and stored in airtight container – about 1 day prior
  • freezes well in airtight container
