Tell us about your recipe
Since finding out I have Celiac disease 8 years ago, it has been my passion to create delicious food that is gluten free. My goal is to cook dishes that my whole family will enjoy and be able to share together. In fact, they are my top taste testers. They are very honest with me telling me which recipes taste as good if not better than gluten filled foods. This is one recipe that everyone in my family agreed on as 5 star!
I generally start out with a standard recipe and charge it using gluten free flours fresh from my grain mill. This particular recipe I found in a Pillsbury cookbook and changed all the flours and tweaked several other ingredients. My goal in this recipe was to create a scone that used protein based flours so that it would be easier on your blood sugar. I always use whole grain gluten free flours to bring about the most nutrition as possible. Whether you are gluten free or not, I know that you will love these scones!
