Since finding out that I am gluten intolerant (boo, very boring and sad), I have been trying to find good recipes for various baked goods.
I love scones and they are are so easy to whip up with just a few ingredients that you are likely to have in your fridge and pantry. Have that warm scone with really good salted butter or if you are really fancy, clotted cream and strawberry jam.
During the CB (Circuit Breaker aka lock down) I was jonesing for some scones, so I made some gluten free cheese scones. I have also included the recipe for the gluten free flour, feel free to tweak it by using different flours.I don’t really like sweets so I made my scones a little savoury with cheese. Here is the recipe for gluten free cheese scones.
