Everyone loves scones, but finding gluten free scones is difficult.
Mmm, these look like they are full of gluten because they look so good, but they’re not.
Chocolate Chip Scones
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp xanthan gum (if using gluten free flour without it mixed in)
1/4 cup sugar
1 and 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp butter cut into pieces
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup roughly chopped semi-sweet chocolate
1 tbsp milk
2 tsp sugar
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Cut in butter with a pastry blender, fork, or fingers.
In separate bowl blend egg, milk, and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and mix until combined.
Chop chocolate chips and stir them in.
Form a circle or square on greased baking sheet. The dough is sticky so you may need some additional flour.
Use a pizza cutter to cut desired sizes.
Brush top with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Weekend suggestion: bake these and enjoy your christmas tree!
