Made with a mix of gluten-free flours, these Paleo Orange Scones are perfect with your afternoon tea or topped with jam!
Last week I got a cold and, as usual, my taste buds went into hibernation.
It wasn’t until Sunday that I finally felt confidant that anything I created in my kitchen wouldn’t be some strange disaster of salt and too many eggs.
I went into my kitchen and stared at my pantry for a good 30 minutes before I decided to try to adapt one of my all time favorite scone recipes. This is the recipe that won the the heart of my Mother-in-law.
Actually, I’ve learned that the saying “The stomach is the way to a man’s heart” pretty much applies to anyone.
If you cook them a good meal, they can’t help but think kind thoughts about you.
This is so simple but tasty and seriously pretty darn close to the original. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
