This combination may sound a bit unusual, but strawberries and rosemary together are so dreamy. Buttery, tender-crumbed with tangy lemon glaze, these Strawberry & Rosemary Scones will simply melt in your mouth.
The sweet-tart juicy strawberries in a not too sweet gluten-free pastry, perfumed with woodsy, piney rosemary will liven up your senses. Not to mention the incredible fragrance that will waft through your house! Rosemary’s unique flavor profile works very well in a lot of dishes. It can be very strong too, so it’s better to use it judiciously. In these scones, its assertive enough, but blends extraordinarily well with the freshness of strawberries and zing of lemon in the glaze.
These Strawberry & Rosemary Scones are gluten-free as I made them with amaranth flour and almond meal. For almond meal, I simply whizzed up some blanched and peeled almonds in my coffee grinder till they were coarsely ground. I wasn’t entirely sure if amaranth flour would hold since there is no egg in this recipe. To be on the safer side, I added some psyllium husk or isabgol to the batter! Yes, you heard that right! It helps to bind gluten-free flours together, to create a less crumbly texture in the baked goods. And no, you CANNOT taste it, and it adds extra fiber..so win-win!!

There is no fancy technique for making scones. Just keep in mind, gentle handling of the dough. Don’t overwork it and you’ll get the most tender scones. Minimal handling is the key. You can easily make this vegan by using chilled coconut oil as I did or my Lavender Buckwheat Jam Scones and Blueberry Coconut Scones .
