Scones air fryer


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional add-ins (chocolate chips, dried fruits, etc.)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Add the cold cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the milk and vanilla extract.
  4. Gradually add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; you want the dough to come together but remain somewhat crumbly.
  5. If you’re adding any extras like chocolate chips or dried fruits, fold them into the dough gently.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and shape it into a round disk, about 1 inch thick.
  7. Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C).
  8. Cut the dough into scones using a sharp knife or a biscuit cutter. You should get about 8 scones.
  9. Place the scones into the air fryer basket, leaving some space between them.
  10. Air fry the scones at 350°F (175°C) for 10-12 minutes, or until they are golden brown on the outside and cooked through. Cooking times may vary depending on your air fryer model, so keep an eye on them.
  11. Remove the scones from the air fryer and allow them to cool on a wire rack.
  12. Serve the scones with clotted cream, jam, or any toppings of your choice.
