Foodie Friday: Cherry Almond Scones

I love scones and when my friend shared her basic recipe for them, I had fun tweaking it and making a combination of flavors that are one of my favorites.

I make these gluten free by substituting my favorite gluten free flour and 2 teaspoons of xanthum gum.  I do a cup for cup substitution with the flour.

Fold in chopped cherries. At this point I usually use my hands to make a ball of dough.

Pat the dough into a circle on a baking sheet.  I typically use parchment paper, but was out. Cut the circle into 8 wedges and separate the wedges (this is so the scones will get that lovely, crusty outside).

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned.
