Gluten Free Fruit Scones Recipe

by Becky | Posted in Muffins & Scones

Fruit scones are one of my all-time favourite treats to make. They are quick and easy to make.  They are totally delicious with some strawberry jam, a dollop of cream and a pot of tea.  What could be better?

The recipe makes about 10-12 scones depending on how big you want to make them.. enjoy.
