Heather's Gluten Free Scones

Heather's Gluten Free Scones

2 1/4 cup white rice flour
7/8 cup tapioca starch
7/8 cup sweet rice flour
2 tsp. xanthan gum
2 Tbsp. baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

8 Tbsp. cold butter

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 F.

In a food processor, combine all the dry ingredients, pulse to mix. Cut in the cold butter and pulse until small crumbs are formed. Dumb mixture into a bowl.

Beat the eggs and add with the heavy whipping cream to the dry mixture. Carefully combine. Dump half the mixture onto the counter and knead to form an almost-smooth dough. Pat out with hands until about 1-inch thick. Cut with a scone cutter. Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes (this is very approximate -- keep an eye on them). I like to bake them on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet.

Makes about 1 1/2 dozen large scones. Best served warm.
