Lemon/Poppyseed Scones(gf,df,cf,sf)

I remember eating scones in Victoria, Canada on summer trips. I really don't remember being impressed enough to remember the taste and texture. The whole idea of having "tea" were more memorable to a little girl.

That being said, I have no idea whether these are as scone like or not as far as texture goes, we just know they were very tasty! :-)

2 1/2 cup gf all purpose flour blend.
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tablespoon ground chia seed( Or exchange 1 1/2 teaspoon of guar gum and remove the chia and gelatin)
1 tsp unflavored gelatin
1/4 tsp salt
zest of one lemon
1/4 cup poppy seeds.
5 Tbl coconut oil, chilled and cubed
1.5 c coconut milk cream(if needed, warm it a bit to make sure it is liquid enough to easily blend)
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon infused grapeseed oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl combine dry ingredients,(including poppyseeds and zest) and combine thoroughly.

Cut in coconut oil with a pastry cutter, fork,until it resembles gravel.

Add coconut milk cream and lemon infused grapeseed oil and mix till combined and holding together.

Shape into rough round ball and press flat, about 3-4 inches thick.

Slice into six (6) wedges. You could cut like biscuits as well

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

NOTE: These are like a combination of a biscuit and shortbread. Without guar gum they are more crumbly then usual, but for once we felt like the gluten free crumble was a positive. The second day when we sampled these reminded us more of shortbread. We think these would make a terrific strawberry shortcake, in our case Abby isn't eating strawberries but some sort of fruit or berry shortcake. You could glaze these with a quick lemon glaze, but we did not feel they needed it.
