I love the combo of lemon and blueberry. It speaks of summer, but is a flavour that I will welcome any time of year!
Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Scones
1 cup of fresh blueberries (don't forget to wash them)
2/3 cup buttermilk (add 1 tbsp of lemon juice to regular milk or cream to make it buttermilk)
2 cups gluten free self rising flour mix-OR-2 cups gluten free flour mix + 2 tsp baking powder and a pinch of salt. What you're looking for is baking powder in the ingredients of your g.f. flour mix (quite a few g.f. flour mixes will add this). Also, it's important to note that when doing gluten free baking, do not, I repeat DO NOT just use one type of gluten free flour to substitute regular (wheat) flour. The best results come from having a mix of flours. I like Namaste Perfect Flour Blend, and also Bob's Red Mill Flour Blend.
1 extra tbsp flour, divided
1/3 cup sugar
6 tbsp. cold butter, cubed
For The Glaze
3/4 of a cup of icing (powdered) sugar
The juice from 1 freshly squeezed lemon (though, "bottled" lemon juice is o.k. too. Use 1-2 tbsp. Add it slowly until you have the right consistency)
1/2 tsp lemon zest (if you didn't use a fresh lemon for the juice, I doubt if you'll have any random zest lying around....aka-don't worry about it if you don't have it)
*I usually make these, then freeze the batch of them. I will pull them out as needed, and because the glaze is super easy to make, I can make it at that point.
I served these recently at a tea party I hosted, and my gluten free guests were super happy with them. To me, the scones turn out large, but my friend said, "They were so good! I'm glad they were the size of a house cat, or else I would have eaten 6 instead of 2! It makes me feel like a little less of a pig!".
In conclusion (geepers, there it is again-my need to end everything like a high school essay!) these are good!
