The perfect gluten free Scone recipe!!

Baking gluten free scones for the first time yesterday I took a bit of a chance picking a recipe, but it turned out to the be the tastiest and easiest recipe ever!! So here it is.....

With thanks to:

175g gluten free self raising flour (I used Doves Farm)
50g ground almonds
large pinch salt
50g butter or hard marg (I used butter)
125ml milk

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Sift the flour and the salt into a bowl, then stir in the ground almonds.

Add the butter or marg and rub together until it looks like fine breadcrumbs.

Slowly, mixing with the back of a knife, add the milk until a soft dough is formed.

Bring together  and gently knead in the bowl.

Turn out onto a lightly floured board, roll out to about 1.5inches thick, cut into circles with a cutter (I made mini ones) and place on a lightly greased baking tray.

Repeat until the dough is used. Bake for 10-15mins until golden brown and serve immediately.

Alternatively, cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to a month.

Serve with jam and clotted cream for a delicious treat...!
