Gluten Free Meyer Lemon Curd Scones

I embarked on my gluten free scone adventures last year and ended up with Scookies, which are wonderful for certain purposes like using them as a sandwich for yummy preserves or jam.  My real goal though was to get to a point where I could replicate my all time favorite scone, the Peets Coffee & Tea Lemon Curd Scone. Armed with a brand new scone pan (thanks mom!) and more baking experience, I finally hit it out of the park with this recipe.
