Ingredients
  1. 1½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour*
  2. ¹⁄³ cup sugar
  3. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  4. ¼ teaspoon salt
  5. 4 tablespoons cold salted butter, cut into pieces
  6. ½ cup dried raspberries, such as Stoneridge Orchards
  7. 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh pineapple sage or fresh mint
  8. 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  9. ¾ cup cold heavy whipping cream
  10. ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  11. 1 recipe Confectioners’ Sugar Glaze (recipe follows)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, whisking to blend. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add raspberries, pineapple sage or mint, and lemon zest, stirring until incorporated. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, combine cream and vanilla extract, whisking to blend. Add cream mixture to flour mixture, stirring until a crumbly dough forms. Bring dough together with your hands until it forms a ball. (If mixture seems dry, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, until uniformly moist.)
  5. Using a levered 3-tablespoon scoop, drop dough 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake until edges of scones are golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the centers comes out clean, approximately 15 minutes. Transfer scones to a wire cooling rack, and let cool completely. When cool, spoon Confectioners’ Sugar Glaze over scones.
