Alice In Wonderland Scones & they're Gluten Free!

As promised I am continuing the series on the Gluten Free tea party items.  I am happy to report that I successfully converted one of my favorite pre-GF recipes for scones & they tasted just as good at the original version.  HOWEVER, I am also so excited to share the following LO for you that I just completed to feature the recipe.  The following LO was created for the April Sketch challenge over at Kitchen Keepsakes  Janet created the awesome sketch.  You can check out her wonderful blog at .  I also have to give credit to Amy Bender from Moonsplash Designs for the creative inspiration.  She has an incredible alter “Alice” project on her blog that you MUST check out!
So, without further ado . . . here is my layout:
I am never very good at listing the items that I used in my LOs but since I just returned from the CK convention yesterday I do know the names of most of the supplies J

Now for the recipe:
Gluten Free Scones

2 c GF flour mix
¼ c sugar or Splenda
¼ t salt
½ c firm butter, cut in 8 pieces
1/3 to ½ c butter milk
½ c dried cranberries, raisins or fresh berries
2 t grated orange peel
1 ½ t cream of tartar
¾ t baking soda
1 T GF binder

Mix dry ingredients & cut in butter with pastry blender until mix looks like fine crumbs.  Stir in buttermilk so dough leaves sides of bowl.  Stir in fruit of choice.  Drop about 1/3 c of dough 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 10 to 15 min until light brown.

May substitute raisins or fresh blueberries for cranberries & cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice & vanilla (w/raisins) or lemon peel (w/blueberries) for orange peel.
If you want to make these with regular flour use 2 cups of flour instead of the gluten free flour mix & eliminate the gluten free binder.  Either way, they are excellent!

Need a good Gluten Free Flour Mix?  Here is the one that I used for this recipe:

Gluten Free Flour Mix
2 c white rice flour
2/3 c potato starch
1/3 c tapioca flour
1 T gluten free binder

Mix & store in airtight container for up to 1 year.
