Ingredients
  1. 3 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour*
  2. 4½ teaspoons baking powder
  3. ½ teaspoon salt
  4. ½ cup cold butter
  5. 1 cup chopped dried figs
  6. ½ cup blue cheese crumbles
  7. 1¾ cups cold heavy whipping cream
  8. 1 large egg
  9. 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt, whisking to combine. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture is crumbly. Add figs and blue cheese, stirring to combine. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, combine cream and egg, whisking well. Add to flour mixture, stirring until a dough forms. (If mixture seems dry, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, until uniformly moist.)
  5. Using a levered 3-tablespoon scoop, drop dough onto prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle tops of scones with turbinado sugar.
  6. Bake until light golden brown, 13 to 15 minutes.
  7. Serve warm.
Notes
  1. *For testing purposes, we used Gluten Free Pantry all-purpose flour (glutino.com). Using another brand may yield different results. Sift or whisk flour before measuring.
  2. • Not all blue cheese is gluten-free. Individuals with an allergy or sensitivity to gluten should confirm that the product they use in preparing this recipe is gluten-free.
