Hi I thought it was about time to start a blog, and was wondering what to post as my first entry.  Well after a bit I thought on this site, what could be better than a recipe!

Fantastic Gluten Free Scones

Pre heat oven to 425F  or 220C degrees.

2 cups of your favourite gluten-free flour mix
1 Tbsp baking powder (make sure it's GF)
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt plus a pinch
1/4 tsp xanthan gum (if it's not included in your GF flour mix)
90g cold butter, cut into pieces
3/4 cup butter milk or natural yoghurt
1 egg

Sweet Scones
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins
Savoury Scones
1/2 cup grated cheese

In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and xanthan gum.
Add the butter to the flour mix and cut in, coating the pieces with flour as you go, until the largest pieces of butter are pea-sized. Keep this mixture cold, chilling it in the refrigerator if the butter starts to soften.
Next stir in the extra ingredients for either the sweet or savoury scones.
Whisk together in a separate bowl, and add to the dry.  Stir until the mixture starts to hold together, then gently knead the dough a few times with your hands. Depending on your flour mix, the dough may be very sticky. While this makes it difficult to handle, it is okay. If the dough seems dry and won't hold together easily, add a little more buttermilk and knead it in.
Put the dough on a large baking sheet and gently form into a flat disk about one inch high. Cut into eight equal pieces to either cook individually or leave together and cook as a large scone. Brush some milk onto the top of the scones.  If making cheese scones, sprinkle with some more grated cheese.  Bake for 10-12 minutes for individual scones or about 20 minutes for a large scone, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of one comes out clean.

The original recipe, came from here  http://glutenfreegourmand.blogspot.com/  but I've tweaked it a little bit.

I hope you enjoy! thumbsup
