    I tried the raspberry scone recipe and it was really good!! I was wondering though if you used xanthan gum for it doesn’t call for it and GF mix usually don’t have it in. Thank you!!

    Also all your recipes look so good! I’m going to have to try more of them!

      Hi Celiane, I’m so glad you tried and enjoyed the recipe! I didn’t use Xanthan gum, just Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour. I find I don’t need to add much of anything else (besides a little baking powder or baking soda) when I use the that flour ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope that helps and let me know if you have any other questions!
