Recipe: White Chocolate and Cranberry Scones

I love scones!

Before my celiac diagnosis I used to get the white chocolate and berry scones from Good Earth bakery here in Calgary. They were so good and now that I am gluten free I’ve wanted to find a great gluten free one.

I think I found it!

These scones are super moist and not at all chalky. I love the chopped up white chocolate bits and the tangy dried cranberries that are in them.

Do you have pre-celiac foods that you would love to have again? Have you tried to convert the recipes? Any success?

I would love to hear from you and if you have any great recipes that you would love to share, please let me know. I will try them and if they work out will post them.

Recipe: White Chocolate and Cranberry Scones

¾ cup rice flour
¾ cup tapioca starch
¾ cup cornstarch
2 ½ tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp brown sugar
½ tsp xanthan gum
½ tsp salt
¼ cup cold butter or vegan shortening
2 eggs
¼-1/2 cup buttermilk
2-3 squares white chocolate, chopped
½ cup dried cranberries

Mix the dry ingredients together in a stand mixer to combine.
Cut up cold butter and add to dry ingredients. Mix quickly to combine (should resemble a coarse meal)
Add the buttermilk and eggs and mix until combined.
Add white chocolate and cranberries and mix quickly. You do not want to overwork the dough, just a couple quick pulses will do.

Scoop out the dough into even portions. I have an extra large ice cream scoop that I like to use. It allows then equal sizes.

Place dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for 14-16 minutes.

Place on a rack to cool.

  1. to make soy buttermilk:
    1 cup unsweetened soy milk
    1 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice (I prefer lemon juice)


    They look great! I wish I had more of the ingredients so I could make them today.

  2. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I also ate scones from Good Earth in Calgary quite often and could not find a recipe which was similar. Then I went on a gluten free diet whenever possible and tried a paleo diet also. Your recipe looks scrumptious! I can’t wait to try it. I will use blueberries and white chocolate or strawberries are really good too. Thanks again. ….Katie

  3. I have a few scone recipes on my blog. They really are a favorite of mine, especially with fruit butter, sharp cheese and Devonshire cream
