Homemade Buttermilk Scones Recipe


The BEST Buttermilk Scones Recipe!!

Have you ever had buttermilk scones?

Not the ones that you can get pre-made at the store, but REAL, homemade buttermilk scones.  OH MY!!  They are absolutely incredible!

A few years ago we had a neighbor who would have regular tea parties at her house (she had 3 daughters) and she always made these incredible scones.

One day I asked her if she might possibly share her scones recipe with me (I was sure it was some kind of family secret) and she was more than happy to tell me that she adapted the recipe from the Food Network website.

So, I thought I would share this fabulous scones recipe with you guys in case you want to make a frugal dessert that everyone will go crazy for!

The directions that my neighbor gave me were very specific (like cutting the butter into the flour and only kneading the dough 12 times), but I gave this recipe to a friend and when she makes it she melts the butter in the microwave and kneads the dough a ton and the scones still come out tasting great!

The recipe below is the “official” way to make it, but your guests probably won’t notice if you take a few short-cuts.  🙂

  1. Scones are just delightful. Especially ones with chocolate in them. The end.

    🙂 Thanks for sharing this – I really need to try to make some scones!

  2. These truly were the best scones I’ve ever had. Many thanks

  3. I made these for a brunch at work and got so many compliments. People said they were the best scone they’ve ever had and asked for my recipe. I made a batch with blueberries and another with cranberries and chocolate chips.
