Best Scone Toppings

How To Make Food Processor Buttermilk Scones

1.) Put the ingredients in the food processor

Using the food processor helps you get the butter evenly distributed when you’re first blending it into the flour, and when it melts while baking, it produces the air pockets that make these Buttermilk Scones so fluffy. The trick is to use really cold butter.


2.) Cut Dough into Wedges

After your dough is completely mixed, you are ready to cut the shapes of your scones.

I prefer my scones in wedges rather than squares, so I do a big circle and cut it with a sharp knife or a pizza cutter.

Arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for easy cleanup and pop them in the oven while you wash the food processor. So easy!


You’ll be rewarded with golden Food Processor Buttermilk Scones that are a great addition to any breakfast, brunch or afternoon tea.

    Great recipe and I shall definitely make this recipe again.
    Thanks for sharing and spreading enjoyment from your recipe.
