Blackberry Scones (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Ok, so as promised (for once LOL)….here are my magnificent blackberry scones! These are melt in your mouth delicious, moist, flaky and tender. They have the perfect balance of sweet and tangy with the blackberries (if they were local and in season they’d be better, but you get what you get when you buy out of season at the store right!?) and just a hint of cinnamon. There’s just something about fruit and cinnamon that makes a tasty combination of flavors! These are not drop scones as the last ones were, but they’re still simple to make. I cut this down to make just 4, because scones really are best right out of the oven. If you do have leftovers, be sure to heat them up just a touch in the microwave so they’re nice and tender again! I’m still craving scones (I must be hooked!), so more to come. Enjoy! 🙂

1 cup gluten free flour

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup blackberries, fresh or frozen

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and flatten dough to 3/4 inch thick circle.  Cut into 4 triangles. Place scones on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with toppings.
