Blueberry Scones

www.Iamglutenfree.blogspot.com

2 1/2 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake mix
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
grated zest of one lemon
4 tbsp Earth balance
2/3 cup hemp milk (see note)
1 egg
1 cup blueberries (see note)
turbinado sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine the baking and pancake mix with baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, nutmet and lemon zest. Cut in the Earth balance with either two knives or pastry cutter. Add hemp milk and egg, combining with a fork. Add blueberries and combine until mixed in. Be careful not to overmix.

For best results, use medium-sized ice cream scoop to scoop batter onto nonstick silpat mat (great for gluten free baking). Otherwise, drop large spoonfuls of batter onto ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle a little bit of turbinado sugar on each scone before baking.

Bake 20 - 22 minutes. Let rest for five minutes on baking tray and then remove to rack and let rest at least 30 minutes before eating.

Notes:
Hemp milk is great for gluten free baking. It can be bought at most Whole Foods or look for an online merchant. You can sub other types of milk, but I don't think thinner milks (like almond or rice) will yield the same results.

Before mixing the blueberries with the batter, coat them with a little of Pamela's mix to keep them from sticking.
