These scones freeze well and taste even better the next day, warmed for 30 seconds in a microwave. Serve with apricot jam or honey.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚. Sift together first seven ingredients (brown rice flour through salt). Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together 4 eggs, yogurt, apricots, and extracts. Add to flour-butter mixture. Mix until just combined.
  3. Dust work surface with brown rice flour. Turn out scone mixture and pat into a 9x9-inch square. Cut scones into desired shape, or use a biscuit cutter. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Whisk remaining egg with 1 table-spoon water; brush mixture over scones. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake for 10–15 minutes, until golden.
