Wild Blueberry Scones (Gluten-free)

Wild Blueberry Scones (Gluten-Free)

Recipe from ‘The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Bread‘. The texture was nice, but I did find they could have been sweeter (not surprising, considering the small amount of sugar the recipe calls for). I did make a few modifications: I used butter instead of vegan spread, and I sprinkled some raw sugar on top of the scones before baking.  I didn’t flatten the scones too much before baking (a good thing,  since they didn’t rise all that much). Finally,  I found the yield was off and would have resulted in giant scones,  so I cut the dough into more pieces.

Orange Spice Cookies (Gluten-free)

Recipe from ‘The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Cakes and Cookies‘.  These turned out really well, both flavour and texture-wise.  I did find they needed to bake quite a bit longer than the recipe recommended.   The only modification I made was sprinkling the cookies with a bit of maple sugar before baking.

Update:  It turns out the baking time may have been accurate after all.  Even though I stored them in a tin, they hardened up quite a bit in the 1 1/2 days between the time I baked them, and the time I served them.  They were still good, but they were quite crunchy!
