Buttermilk scones can easily be made from scone mixes. They do not enjoy the same level of popularity everywhere you go. Many home cooks are not confident in their ability to pop out a batch, and some recipes are confusing.
A scone mix, however, provides the basic scone ingredients, or some of them anyway, and allows you to make fluffy and delicious scones whenever you like.
Buttermilk scones are quick & easy when you make them like this, but what you may not know is that they are part of healthy eating. You can even skip making perfect triangles and just make drop scones where you drop the dough onto the baking sheet.
Of course, oven cooking on an ungreased baking sheet makes them better than fried treats, and the fresh blueberries that you work into a blueberry scone count toward your daily fruit requirement.
You could use any kind of dried fruit in your easy buttermilk scones mix. It is all left up to your imagination. You can eat these fruity pastries plain or with some whipped topping for an even more decadent flavor.
Quick & Easy
The fact that buttermilk scones are so quick & easy to make is one of their big selling points. The process becomes even easier when you are making fresh scones for just one meal.
You can reserve some of the dough to make more scones later or, to save even more time, you can bake all the scones and freeze the leftovers. You can put baked scones in a zip lock bag and they will last 3-5 days. Then you only have to reheat the scones anytime you want another taste of this unique treat.
A Unique Treat
For many people, making scones at home is a new experience. Scones made with buttermilk have been around and loved for a long time but for some reason they have not made it into many home cooks' repertoires.
Don't think you have to limit yourself to blueberry scones buttermilk flavor. You can also enjoy honey buttermilk scones, cranberry buttermilk scones, black raspberry buttermilk scones, chocolate chip buttermilk scones, and countless other variations on this basic theme.
Buttermilk scones are delicious and easy to make. You can make them healthy or you can make them a decadent indulgence. Either way you can make them to suit your personal tastes so that you always have a quick, easy, and unique treat.
