My Gluten-Free Ham Cheddar and Ramp Scones are the perfect Spring treat. Filled with leftover Easter ham and fresh picked wild leeks (aka Ramps), these scones are perfect for anytime of the day.
I”m always looking for fun and creative ways to enjoy our favorite foraged foods, like ramps. These scones are so delicious that they’ve become a spring staple!
The secret to making the best Gluten-Free Scones is using THIS amazing mix, specially created for baked goods like cookies, scones and biscuits. If you aren’t gluten-free, don’t worry you can simply make this recipe using organic all purpose flour too.
And while we’re talking about substitutions, if you don’t have any ramps feel free to use wild leeks, green onions, scallions or even fresh chives. But trust me, using fresh spring ramps is the BEST.

- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine london mix sugar, baking powder and seasoned salt. Add cold butter, using your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs.
