  • 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.
