Best Scone Toppings
I like to serve them up with butter, local jam or even clotted cream as a real treat. You can even serve them with a drizzle of honey.

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.
3.) Place the scones on a cookie sheet
You’ll be rewarded with golden Food Processor Buttermilk Scones that are a great addition to any breakfast, brunch or afternoon tea.
Food Processor Buttermilk Scones
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in the bowl of food processor fitted with metal blade. Pulse several times to combine.
- Add the cold butter and pulse quickly until mixture resembles coarse meal.
- Add egg and buttermilk and pulse just until mixture comes together in clumps. The dough should be a bit sticky.
- Dust a work surface lightly with flour, then dump scone dough onto surface. With lightly floured hands, press dough into ball. On a floured surface, knead gently 10 times.
- Press dough into a flat circle about 3/4-inch high, then use a sharp knife to cut into 12 wedges.
- Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a rack and allow to cool completely.
- Serve warm with butter or jam.
- Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 day.
