Ingredients
  

  • 2 ¼ Cup Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
  • ¼ Cup Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 2 t. Baking Powder
  • ½ t. Kosher salt
  • 8 tbsp Unsalted butter, frozen
  • 1 large Egg
  • cup Whole Milk
  • ¾ cup Cinnamon Chips
  • 1 Egg for egg wash

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. In a liquid measuring cup whisk together the egg and milk. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Grate the frozen butter into the dry mixture and work it into the flour mixture with your fingers or a pastry cutter. Add cinnamon chips.
  • Add milk mixture to flour mixture and mix together until you can form it into a ball. Try not to work the mixture too much.
  • Dust a work surface with gluten free flour and cut the ball in half. Form each half into a 5 ½ inch wide disk. Cut each disk in half vertically and then cut each side into three triangles. You should have 12 scones.
  • Bake 6 scones at a time on a parchment or silpat lined sheet pan. Whisk an egg in a small bowl and brush each scone with the egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake for 18 minutes or until slightly brown on top and crackly.
