Gluten-Free Raspberry Scones

Those who have wheat allergies shouldn’t have to go without indulgent treats. Recently, I’ve been experimenting with gluten-free flours  and trying to find ways to expand my food pantry.

This recipe for raspberry scones were a hit at my house and I wanted to share the recipe. The scones are light, sweet and delicious; and the consistency closely resembles the texture of pastries made with wheat flour.

If you do not like raspberries, you can easily substitute your favorite berry or berry mixture as the recipe is very versatile. If you’re in a pinch for time, you can make this dough ahead of time to refrigerate it overnight and the texture remains fluffy.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate.
