Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten-Free Flour Blend
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 6 tbsp. cold cubed Earth Balance Butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp. Forager Sour Cream or any other dairy free sour cream

  • 1 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. melted earth balance butter

  2. Cut butter cubes into the flour. Combine until the butter cubes are size of peas.

  4. Gently fold blueberries into dough.
  5. Shape dough into a disc, wrap and freeze for 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Place disc on parchment paper and using a sharp knife cut into 8 wedges- similar to cutting a pizza.
  8. Spread scones out on parchment paper and bake for 18 minutes. Oven temps vary so just keep a good watch on them.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool.

Notes

** do not use soft mushy blueberries, they add too much moisture to the dough and your scones will NOT bake properly.
