These scones are really tasty – and just right for a cold winter’s afternoon with some hot tea and your favourite homemade jam. I like German plum.

Sweet and Spicy Gluten-free Scones

1 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup arrowroot flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 tablespoon cider vinegar or lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup oil, like sunflower or another less aromatic oil
1 cup milk (more or less)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment.

Mix dry ingredients in a deep bowl, creating a small well in the centre. Add sour cream and oil to the well, then the cider vinegar. Begin to blend, adding milk as needed until you achieve a nice texture, not too moist and not too dry, so that you can shape the dough into a round. Collect the dough and pat into a ball. Place the ball on the parchment and pat until it is a nice flat round, a bit higher in the middle than the sides. Sprinkle lightly with sugar (optional) Bake for 30-45 minutes until done. Serve warm with butter, your favourite jam, and a piping hot cup of tea.
