    I just made these scones and I’m sad to say they didn’t turn out. The mixture was way too dry to form a dough. I had to add about half a cup of almond milk, then after baking they just tasted floury. No sweetness from the honey or lemon flavor came through at all. Next time I will start with 1.5 cups of flour.

      I’m sorry these didn’t turn out for you Brittany! Next time, try adding the flour a little at a time until it gets to a consistency that you like and can work with. Good luck with your next batch!

    I cannot have eggs. What kind of egg substitute can I use?
    Could I use applesauce?

    I should have read the reviews before I made these scones, I agree with Brittany on all pts. These scones are absolutely tasteless and the mixture was so dry I had to add 1/2 cup of milk.
    Overall I would find yourself a better gluten free recipe.
