FAQs about gluten-free scones

A: Yes! Our gluten-free scones are made using one rice-based gluten-free flour blend.

And if your scones are coming out dry or crumbly, try reducing the bake time by a minute or two.
Q: Can I make these scones ahead of time?
A: Preferably not! Gluten-free scones, like most gluten-free baked goods, are best when made fresh and are warm.
Q: How do I freshen up a gluten-free scone?
A: Place the scones on a baking sheet into a preheated oven at 350 F and bake until lightly heated. About 5 – 8 minutes
variations for savory scones
There are endless possibilities when it comes to savory scones. Add fresh herbs of choice, smoked salmon, sundried tomatoes, olives, smoked cheese or ham for variations.
However, the most popular gluten-free savory scones are made with bacon and cheese.
How to master the best texture for gluten-free scones?
There are a few things to keep in mind when trying to achieve the perfect texture for gluten-free scones.
First, ensure that all of your ingredients are at room temperature before mixing them together. Room temperature ingredients will help to prevent your scones from being dense or crumbly.
Second, use a light hand when mixing the ingredients. Over-mixing can result in tough scones. This is probably the best advice I can offer.
Third, be careful not to over-bake the scones. They should be golden brown and just set in the center when they come out of the oven.
Follow these tips, and you’ll be sure to end up with delicious, light, perfect crumb gluten-free scones!
step by step instructions for making gluten-free bacon and cheese scones
First, briefly cook the bacon with the green onions. This allows the bacon to be fully cooked before mixing it with dry ingredients. As a result, the bacon will be crispy, and the green onions will be flavoured with bacon.
Once the bacon is cooked, combine dry ingredients, including cheese, with the bacon mixture.
The third step is the most important! Add the milk and mix until the dough starts to come together. DO NOT OVERMIX, or the scones will become dense. Done!
Now that you have the bacon and cheese scone mixture ready, roll it out to about 1 1/2 inch thickness, and cut into desired shapes. The oven temperature is critical!
The oven must to be hot before you start baking the scones to achieve the best results! The high heat quickly bakes them without drying the scones out.
Gluten Free savory scones are always popular because they can replace sandwich bread or serve them with hearty soups and stews. The gluten-free cheese scones make an excellent addition to brunch, especially with savory toppings such as Smoked Salmon.
