Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C).

  • Stir together flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with 2 knives or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  • Beat egg with a fork in a small bowl. Remove 2 tablespoons egg to another small bowl; set aside. Add buttermilk and vanilla extract to remaining egg; whisk with the fork until combined. Stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Gently stir in blueberries.

  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface. Gently knead until dough is no longer sticky, about 8 to 10 strokes. Pat dough into a 6-inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges, without separating, dipping the knife in flour between cuts.

  • Combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and orange zest in a small bowl. Brush top of dough with reserved egg and sprinkle with sugar mixture. Separate dough wedges and carefully arrange them, using a small wide spatula, in a single layer in the fryer basket, in batches if necessary.

  • Cook scones until golden brown, about 6 minutes. Serve warm.

Cook's Note:

Sour milk can be used in place of buttermilk. Frozen blueberries can be substituted for fresh.

I made these the other day with Raspberries and they were extremely sticky so sticky I had to add a lot of extra flour when trying to knead the dough. They tasted fine and each morning I've used my oven to reheat a couple because the microwave doesn't do them justice. since I still have buttermilk left I am going to try them again and use less liquid Read More
