Gluten-Free Vanilla Bean Scones

Although it's been ages since I lasted posted...I promise I am still cooking! Turns out having a baby is really time consuming :-) 

I recently discovered vanilla bean paste and it is life changing! you get the rich flavor and little speckles of real vanilla without scraping a vanilla bean! I used Nielson-Massey bourbon vanilla bean paste which is certified gluten free and can be found on Amazon or speciality stores like Williams & Sonoma and Sur la Table. It's so flavorful and easy to incorporate into recipes. 

Vanilla Bean Scones 

2 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
1/4 cup Cup 4 Cup Flour 
1/3 cup cane sugar
1 tsp baking powder
4 Tbs butter
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup milk
1 Tbs vanilla bean paste

Mix the dry ingredients together. Cut in the butter using two knives. Add the milk, beaten egg and vanilla bean paste. Mix together with a fork or in a mixer. Dough will be thick. Using an ice-cream scoop, drop dollops of dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 15-17 minutes or until tops of scones lightly  golden.  Makes 9 or 10 scones. For a perfect tea-time treat, serve with butter and raspberry preserves. Enjoy!
