Cooking Tips

  • Make sure the butter is cold and cut into small pieces before adding it to the flour mixture. This will help create a flaky texture in the scones.
  • Caramelizing the onions adds a sweet and savory flavor to the scones. Take your time to cook the onions slowly until they are golden brown and caramelized.
  • If you don't have buttermilk, you can make a substitute by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup of milk. Let it sit for 5 minutes before using.
  • For extra flavor, you can sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese on top of the scones before baking.

Storage and Serving

  • These scones are best served warm, straight from the oven.
  • If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  • To reheat the scones, place them in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 5 minutes, or until warmed through.
  • Serve the scones with butter or cream cheese for a delicious breakfast or brunch treat.
