Keeping up with the Ratio Rally and my fellow Gluten-Free ladies, this month we’re sharing with you a delicious spread of scones.

All gluten-free and delicious.

But, instead of the usual scone-like shape I decided to get a bit creative.

And I opted for a muffin tin.

Yes, a scone in a muffin shape.

Dense n’ hearty and perfect.

These babies will be gone before you know it. One bite and it’s all over.

Slice ’em in half with a bit o’ jam, nut butter or honey and you’re all set.

Pure heaven. On earth.

In just a mini muffin-like scone.

Because life’s all about the little things and enjoying the unexpected.

So, when someone asks you if you’ve ever had a muffin scone…

You can say, “Surely, I have….”

And I know you’ll be making these again. They’re contagious and adorable.

I simply can’t resist.

With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, go ahead and whip up a batch. Momma will be proud and all smiles with each bite.

I promise.
