Smart Tips

  • Cold Ingredients: Keep the butter and buttermilk cold for a flakier texture.

  • Do Not Overwork: Handle the dough as little as possible to keep the scones tender.

  • Customize Your Flavors: Add cheese, herbs, or spices to tailor the scones to your taste.

  • Freezer-Friendly: Prepare and freeze the dough ahead of time, and bake fresh scones in minutes whenever desired.

  • Perfect Pairings: Serve with herbed butter or a creamy cheese spread to complement the scones’ savory taste.

  • Portion Control: Use a mini biscuit cutter to ensure even baking and perfect bite-size portions.

  • Spacing on Baking Sheet: Space the scones evenly to allow for proper heat circulation and to prevent them from sticking together.

  • Brushing with Buttermilk: Gives a lovely golden hue to the scones and adds a subtle tanginess.
