Ingredients
  1. 1½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour*
  2. ⅓ cup sugar
  3. 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  4. ¼ teaspoon salt
  5. 3 tablespoons cold salted butter, cut into pieces
  6. ½ cup finely chopped dried apricots
  7. 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  8. 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream, divided
  9. ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  10. 2 teaspoons turbinado sugar
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350°.
  2. Spray 2 (6-well) mini heart-shaped muffin pans† with nonstick baking spray with flour. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, whisking well. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add apricots and rosemary, stirring to combine. Set aside.
  4. In a liquid measuring cup, combine ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons cream and vanilla extract, stirring to blend. Add to flour mixture, stirring to combine. Working gently, bring mixture together with hands until a dough forms. (If dough seems dry, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough is uniformly moist.)
  5. Using a levered 3-tablespoon scoop, drop dough into wells of prepared pans, patting to create a level surface. Brush tops of scones with remaining 2 tablespoons cream. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  6. Bake scones until a wooden pick inserted in the centers comes out clean, 16 to 18 minutes.
  7. Serve warm.
Notes
  1. *We used Glutino brand gluten-free all-purpose flour, which is available at glutino.com and at some Whole Foods Markets.
  2. †We used NordicWare Platinum Mini Heart Baking Pans.
