I was driving through the States, just outside San Francisco when we stopped in at Whole Foods to buy some dinner items. I found the Whole Food's brand of Cranberry Orange scones. This was before I really started baking my own gluten free items. Very dry. Not a ton of flavour. Certainly not great at room temperature and well, we didn't have access to a microwave.
I torment myself. I read the King Arthur Flour blog. Sometimes just for the photos. The photos can be mouthwatering. They recently had a blog post on Gluten Free Brazilian Cheese Bread which I really want to try since I had some at the Farmer's Market on Granville Island in Vancouver.
But prior to that, some time ago, bookmarked and saved was a recipe for Scone Nibbles or a copycat version of Starbucks scones. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/2009/06/10/a-tasty-nibble-an-ideal-nosh-sugar-glazed-mini-scones/
Now, I made some focaccia last week with a gluten free bread flour mix and didn't label it. So of course, what did I accidently use when I made these scones? Yeah, that's right. Oh well, they were still amazing. I really can't complain.
I didn't have enough chocolate chips or vanilla extract so I used my white chocolate chips with some butterscotch extract and then some amaretto flavouring for the glaze.
That's right. White chocolate butterscotch scones with amaretto glaze. So much yum!
