Gluten and Lactose-Free Cinnamon Apple Drop Scones

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by bakedapple42

For those of us who love fresh baked, warm scones, but cannot have regular wheat and dairy-laden ones. You can alter this recipe to suit your tastes by changing the type of spices and fruit that you add. (BTW: Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Biscuit Mix already contains salt and baking powder so you do not need to add any more.)

This is a great easy recipe! I've doubled it each time I've made it. The 1st time I used Bob's Red Mill but the bean flour taste was a bit too obvious for me. The 2nd time I used Arrow Mill GF baking mix and I thought they turned out so much better. I used frozen blackberries instead of apples; they were amazing. In a gluten and dairy free household, great baked goods are in demand. This is my new go-to scone and biscuit recipe.
