One of the great things about gluten-free scone recipes, they are effortless and can be made with just a few basic ingredients such as butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, eggs and milk.

However, adding sweet and savoury ingredients, you can convert a plain gluten-free scone into a deliciously sweet or savoury snack. Some add-ins for sweet scones are berries, raisins, nuts, and oats, often glazed.

For gluten-free savoury scones, add different cheeses, bacon, chives, onions, herbs, ham, sundried tomatoes, and just about anything you desire.
