My home has always been filled with the happy sounds of cooking and baking. Years ago when I first learned I had to live gluten free, I feared my kitchen would be silent. But thanks to culinary pioneers like Beth Hillson (founder of Gluten-Free Pantry), Bette Hagman (the original gluten-free gourmet cookbook author) and Steven Rice (founder of Authentic Foods), I figured out how to adapt all the traditional recipes from my culinary training so that I could enjoy them once more. These recipes are my most requested, the tasty gluten-free, dairy-free results of years of happy collaboration. And that’s music to my ears.

Making gluten-free scones that are moist and sumptuous is all in the touch of the dough. With practice, you will develop what I call “fingertip knowledge.” The dough should feel as if it needs more flour—a little tacky, a bit soft, a tad wet. This moisture is important for good results, so fight the temptation to add more flour to the dough.
