Add Buttermilk

Add buttermilk into the mixture and mix together using a dough hook or spatula until it becomes homogenous. The dough should be a bit crumbly but should hold together.

Form Disc & Slice

Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and form it into a 7-inch disc. Slice it into 8 wedges and transfer the scones onto a lined baking sheet.


Freeze scones for 10 minutes.


Bake at 400ºF for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown.

Top Tips for Making Scones

  1. Make sure to use extra cold butter.
  2. Don’t mix the dough with your hands! Why? Using your hands will warm the butter and you want to make sure the butter stays nice and cold. So, use a spatula or dough hook.
  3. Make sure to freeze the dough. This will make sure the butter stays cold so that your scones end up nice and fluffy.
