It’s hard to duplicate the texture of traditional scones using gluten-free ingredients. After many years of experimenting, however, I came up with this recipe that comes pretty close. These are my go-to scones and have been a favorite at my house for years. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten-free flour

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • non-dairy milk + 1 Tbsp lemon juice to = 1 cup

  • 1 Tbsp oil

  • Optional:
    Add any spices you like, such as 1/2 tsp cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

  • If desired, add up to 1 cup of dried fruit, such as: currants, raisins, cherries, cranberries
    -or-
    chocolate chips
    -or-
    chopped nuts

Directions

  • Mix dry ingredients together in a medium bowl (add spices, if using)
  • In small bowl, mix the wet ingredients (if using, add optional dried fruit, chocolate chips, or nuts)
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix lightly
  • Dump the dough (which will be very soft) onto either a greased, or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet
  • With damp hands, shape dough into a circle about 1/2-inch thick
  • With a floured sharp knife, cut 8 wedges (but don’t separate them)
  • If desired, sprinkle the tops of the scones lightly with sugar
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes, or until slightly golden brown. Check with a toothpick inserted in center, to see if they are cooked through. If still doughy, bake for another few minutes, up to 18 minutes total (do not overcook!)
  • Cool for 5 minutes, then pull scones apart and place on wire rack to cool completely

Notes

  • Scones will keep refrigerated for a few days in an airtight container, or several months in the freezer in ziploc bags.
