Ingredients

  • Scones
  • 2 cups gluten-free flour blend I use Bob's Redmill Baking Mix
  • 2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tspn white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup coconut cream so this is the thick, creamy stuff off the top of the can of coconut milk, to help the can separate, I recommend refrigerating the can overnight or at least for a couple of hours
  • 1 tspn clear vanilla extract
  • Strawberry Glaze
  • 2 cups uncut strawberries
  • 1 cup sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Grease a round baking pan. Set aside.
  3. Mix dry ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly combined.
  4. Add coconut cream to dry ingredients in 1/3 increments (haha, we all know I just dumped it all together at once and made a mess).
  5. Mix with your hands...I know it's dry, but trust me. Just trust me.
  6. Place dough in your greased, round baking pan and form it to the sides and kind of flatten the top a little.
  7. Sprinkle some more sugar on top (because that’s awesome). A tablespoon or two should work.
  8. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until the top starts to turn a soft, golden brown.
  9. While that's baking, slice your strawberries into a medium mixing bowl.
  10. Add sugar to strawberries and stir until the sliced strawberries are coated.
  11. Set aside on the counter or in the fridge until the scones are baked.
  12. Remove from oven and allow to cool until you can handle them.
  13. Artfully place the sliced strawberries in the center of the scones, then dump the juice off on top and let it slather everything in that awesomsauceness.
  14. Slice and serve to your fellow shortcake-lovers! LOL!
