Rich Sour Cream Scones, from 1928

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Annacia

I have a summer job in the local museum and I have access to the exhibits. On display are some old cookbooks and I often have time to browse them. My favorite is dated 1928. This recipe comes from that book.

These are great scones. I used equal parts rice flour, sweet rice flour, cornstarch and garfava flour. I also used the whole egg not just the yolk-- gf flour absorbs more liquid . They came out great. I have tried other GF scone recipes and they never come out well. This one is a winner.
