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.)
