Iveta Scones

I truly enjoy hearing about new products, restaurants, bakeries, or places I should visit as a gluten free person from my family, friends, readers, Twitter followers, etc.  I was excited when my friend Hilary told me that her mother, Jeanne, had found a gluten free product called Ivéta and wanted to send me some to try it out.  I never turn down an opportunity to try some gluten free snacks so I said send it along.

Hilary had told me before sending them that the Ivéta mixes her mother was sending were for scones, so I decided to hold off on making them until I went home so I could have a large kitchen and my mother's baking skills at my disposal before attempting to bake scones.  Little did I know that Ivéta's gluten free scones are practically foolproof: place the mix in a bowl, add some heavy cream, mix, and pop in the oven.  That's it!  Even I could make these scones on my own which is definitely saying something.  After mixing in the heavy cream you flatten it until it looks like a large pizza crust. After that divide it up into triangles, pop it in the oven, and your scones will be ready soon!  I can't say I've ever been a big fan of scones, almost never having had them in my pre-GF days.  However, I can definitely say that these scones were more moist and light than the often crunchy and over-baked scones I do remember having pre-GF.  I'm definitely a fan of Ivéta's scones and have already ordered three more packages.  Being so easy to bake makes Ivéta a great choice for a quick brunch snack or a nice baked good to bring over to a friend's place.

Jeanne sent me two flavors: Chocolate Chip and Cranberry.  I'm a chocaholic so I much preferred the chocolate chip scones, but on my next round I'm going to venture and try some other fruit flavors.

I haven't seen these in stores yet so I'm not sure where they are available other than through Ivéta's website, but I'll keep my eyes peeled and update this post if I do happen upon them.

Do you love it or do you love it?
