This morning I decided to break from our normal Sunday morning pancake routine and try making scones. It’s been said that my mom makes the best scones in the world. It’s been years since I’ve had one though because I can’t eat gluten. So this morning I did my best to recreate my moms delicious scones without the gluten. They were pretty close. The flavor was spot on the only difference is they were a bit more crumbly but that’s to be expected when making gluten free versions of things like biscuits and scones. To make gluten free scones you’ll need…

1 cup butter/shortening
3 cups gf flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup of milk
1 small package of apricots chopped
1/2 cup currants
1 cup white chocolate chips

Mix flour, butter/shortening, and milk. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir. I use a spoon and just scoop my scones out into a greased pan. If you want neat scones you could shape them into balls but my mom never did that. The scones go into a preheated 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until the tops are golden brown.

They were so delicious and my three year old discovered a new love, white chocolate.
