Gluten-Free Blackberry Scones

Even if you don't typically eat gluten-free, you'll love these gluten-free scones. They are so moist, light, and tender. Honestly, they are quite simple to make. The beauty of this recipe is that you could stir in any type of fruit you like, or even chocolate chips (everything is better with chocolate chips, right?!?). I used blackberries because they caught my eye at the market the other day, but they would be just as delicious with blueberries or raspberries, or even cranberries.


Gluten-Free Blackberry Scones
for the scones...
2 1/4 cups Pamela's baking mix*
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter, cold and cut into small pieces
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup fresh blackberries

*You can typically find Pamela's baking & pancake mix in the flour aisle or gluten-free area of most markets. I think Pamela's has great flavor. You could also substitute your favorite gluten-free all-purpose flour.

for the blackberry glaze...
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup fresh blackberries (or thawed if frozen)

to make the scones...
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. 

Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Use two forks or a pastry blender to cut in the butter until you have a course meal. Add milk and egg, combining together with a fork. The dough will be quite stick. Fold in the blackberries. Drop large dollops (about the size of an ice cream scoop) of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.

to make the blackberry glaze...
Place blackberries in a blender or food processor and pulse to a puree.

In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix the butter, powdered sugar, and pureed blackberries. Adjust glaze thickness as desired by adding extra powdered sugar to thicken or a teaspoon of water (or extra puree) to thin.

Transfer glaze to a plastic ziplock bag. Snip off one corner of he bag and drizzle glaze over cooled scones.
