It really is Joy the Baker’s fault. I have been baking scones every day since I read her post for Orange and Dark Chocolate Buttermilk Scones. I knew I would have to make my own gluten free version. So I did. And it’s scone mania over here. It’s gotten so bad that last weekend I made 5 batches of scones. All gluten free of course.
Joy, I wish I was your gluten free neighbor. And by the way, I do not have a dog, nor do I play loud 90’s music. And I’m not shy, well, that’s not entirely true; I am shy in groups. But not one-on-one, and I would definitely say, “hi,” if I was your neighbor. And I’d most certainly bring you a batch of these gluten free Orange Chocolate Scones. If I was your neighbor.
