Ingredients

Scones

1 1/2
cups Betty Crocker™ All-Purpose Gluten Free Rice Flour Blend
1/3
cup granulated sugar
2
teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
1
teaspoon grated lime peel
1/2
teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
cup cold butter, cut in small pieces
3/4
cup chopped fresh strawberries
1
cup whipping cream

Lime Glaze

3/4
cup powdered sugar
1
to 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F.
  • 2 In medium bowl, stir together flour blend, granulated sugar, baking powder, lime peel, xanthan gum and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through mixture in opposite directions), until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Gently stir in strawberries. Stir in whipping cream just until moistened.
  • 3 On surface lightly sprinkled with flour blend, knead mixture 5 to 7 times to form dough. Pat into 3/4-inch circle. Cut dough into 8 wedges. Place wedges on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand on cookie sheet 1 minute. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and lime juice until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over warm scones. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

The cream in the recipe contributes part of the essential fat that makes scones so tender and delectable. For best results, do not substitute a lower fat dairy option.

This recipe was created for our new Betty Crocker® Gluten-Free Rice Flour Blend available in grocery stores in late July. Until then, feel free to try this recipe using any gluten-free all-purpose rice flour blend found in larger supermarkets and co-ops.
