Almond Scones

Almond Scones
Here's a quick and easy recipe for Almond Scones. Prep time from start to finish is 30 minutes! They're great with a cup of hot coffee.

Submitted by: Ethan from Moorhead, Minnesota
Yield: 16 small scones


Featured in this Recipe


  • ½ cup almonds, blanched and slivered
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, very cold, cut into small pieces
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ⅓ cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • for garnish, powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Preparation Instructions:

  1. You'll need a food processor that can hold 11 cups for this recipe.

  2. Place the almonds into a food processor and process until they are a fine crumb. Add the remaining dry ingredients and pulse a few times to mix. Add the butter and process until incorporated well.

  3. Now, with the food processor on, add the wet ingredients through the feed tube. Continue to mix, just until it all comes together and forms a ball. Do not overmix!

  4. The dough will be a little sticky when you remove it from the food processor, so I just toss the whole ball into my flour bin and coat it lightly.

  5. Next, divide it into 2 balls. Flatten each ball into a disk, about 8 to 10 inches in diameter and 1 to 2 inches thick. Take a long bladed knife and cut the circles into 8 even wedges. A pizza cutter works well too.

  6. Use a silicone baking mat (Silpat) to keep the scones from sticking to the baking sheet. Place the 16 pieces on the mat on a cookie sheet.

  7. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar once cooled.

I made these Almond scones. I don’t know what I did wrong But they never came to a ball. They were just a real thick blob. It burned up my food processor, It was a Cuisinot?

Kim Stewart

I wondered if I could use almond milk instead of regular milk? Also can I add a touch of cinnamon?

Magnolia Z

I want to ask if is posible to do the recipe with pecans. Thank you

Kellie H

Very flavorful. Better the next day. Would be good with some dried cherries mixed in the batter. You can also scoop straight from the bowl with a cookie scoop and bake as a drop scone.

Cynthia S

Very good! I mixed it manually. Also, used 2/3 cup white whole wheat flour, and I sprinkled sliced almonds and sugar on top before baking. Dough is really sticky. Next time, I will add a little more flour or almonds, and will be careful not to bake it too long. Great almond flavor!

Martin K

Incredibly airy, these are definitely worth a go.

Try using 1cup wheat with 1cup spelt flour for a delicious, fibre and mineral-rich take on these delicious scones. Just be careful not to over-mix the dough lest you break the fragile gluten bonds.

Best Scone recipe I have found! I get raves with it!!! My second batch I altered the sugar level by 1/3 and added as much maple syrup. YUM! Thank you VERY much.

This recipe is fantastic! I topped these scones off with a lemon glaze (powdered sugar, vanilla extract, grated lemon peel, fresh lemon juice) and the resulting flavor was amazing. I will definitely be making these again!

Dawn B

These scones are absolutely delicious!!! I would add that the individual balls will be closer to 6 inches and 1 inch thick.
I’ll be making these a lot!
