Rice Flour Scones

"This is a good recipe for those allergic to regular flour. However, it is a recipe that takes a few practice runs to get comfortable with, as working with rice flour is very different than regular flour. Also, adding fruit or flavoring is very important, as these are very bland otherwise."

  • Pour over flour mixture in the food processor and process for about 10 second or until dough forms large curds.
  • Turn dough onto counter, form into circle and cut into triangles.
  • It will not be as stiff as"normal" doughs, so you have to treat it very gently.
  • Bake about 12-15 minutes until a light golden brown.
  • You can add a variety of things to this basic recipe to make them taste pretty decent.
  • Just about any flavorings, fruits, etc.
  • can be added.
  • Just be prepared to adjust accordingly for the difference you will find with the moisture of the batch.
  • Do not handle this dough any more than you have to-- it’s one of those doughs that needs to be done “just so”.
  • Too much of one thing will give you sand, too much of another will give you goo.

  1. Was looking for recipe with rice flour....just made this, in fact eating one right now, warm from oven.....DELICIOUS, light and fluffy. Did not add any fruit, however, since I did not have tapioca flour, substituted 3 parts almond and 1 part coconut flours......I am also not a fan of using white sugar if I can help it, and certainly not 8 tbs. so I used about 3 tbsp. dark brown sugar, which did not darken the dough at all. I believe the nut flours and brown sugar gives it enough flavor to not be bland. Followed recipe in all other aspects, except it took23 mins. To bake at 425..... Possibly because I used a stone baking sheet.
