Gluten free date scones...

If you can get past the odd after-taste of gluten free flour then I recommend trying these date scones.  They may not look pretty but they are pretty similar to regular date scones.


Basic recipe (all approximates)
2 cups gluten free baking mix
1 heaped teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup chopped dates
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup- 3/4 cup cold water

Sift baking mix, soda and sugar.  Rub in butter, add dates then slowly mix in water to form a soft dough.  Divide into balls or roll out and cut into squares.  Bake at 200C for 10-15 minutes or until browned.  Serve with your favourite topping.
