Gluten Free Strawberry Scones

Gluten Free Day hosted this month’s “Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten Free”, and this theme was fruit desserts.  And while I didn’t develop anything for the event, I did however look at all of the awesome recipes that were submitted (my lemon almond cake was a variation of Elana’s orange cake also featured here), and came across this one for strawberry scones. Sophie’s scones looked so good and scrumptious, I just wanted to try it out!

Well I’m so glad I did, because this recipe was FANTASTIC.

I made this recipe exactly like it was printed, well except I didn’t have guar gum so just used more xantham gum instead, and lemon zest instead of orange zest.  Ok, so I guess that means I didn’t make it exactly like the recipe, but those are minor adjustments in the grand scheme of things.  I even found sorghum flour just for this recipe.  Haha, I also can’t believe I’ve gone through three entire quarts of strawberries this week, I love strawberry season so much!

I am amazed at how perfect these scones came out.  I mean, just look at the center!  They were light, moist, and fluffy, and exactly like scones should be.  So this morning, had a nice breakfast with my husband in the park with scones and some fresh Brazilian coffee that I took in our French coffee press.  It was the perfect morning for it, mid 60′s, and sunny, so relaxing!

I also imagine that making these scones without the strawberries in them would make them perfect for things like strawberry shortcake…Mmm I may have to try that next time….

I love scones. I wish I made them more often. These look like a delicious way to use those summer berries.
