Couldn't you just mix in the buttermilk in the food processor? I tend to not use the cuisinart too often, just because if I have to turn the stuff out into another bowl, I get grouchy about more dishes to wash. We do love scones, though. Afternoon tea on Sundays, with scones, homemade jam, and some whipped cream... that's about the best thing ever. I like blueberry-lemon scones with ginger preserves on top. I have made them with spelt flour, and the texture was a little heavy, not as nice as the whole wheat pastry flour.

Do you use the dough blades or the regular blades in the Cuisinart?

Hilarious! I always read Goodnight Moon to my kids. I guess I know what I'm making for breakfast. I wanted to eat one so bad!

Hi Cynthia! I have recently just discovered this website and blog. Love it! I am in the process of making the brownies recipe, converted to gluten free, hope it works. I have also got a post ready to go show casing your lovely fish tacos with a link back to your site, which I would like to post this week. If the brownies turn out, I would love to post that too, with a link back to this site, if that is ok? Thanks for the laughs and great recipes! Ina

It seems that my addiction to your site is spreading to my families behavior. I couldn't sleep so I got up to make these scones. As I'm covered in sticky dough my husband wanders into the kitchen. Lets me know he has to go in early for a meeting he forgot until just now and wanders back out! LOL!

OK, so how many cooking shows does anyone know that work Our Town into their recipes? I likely will never make scones but I sure do enjoy these episodes!

Anne, Of course! Our Town. Only you would pull that out. Love it. Thank you. Also the childrens book Goodbye Moon.. One of the videos has a reference to South Pacific too but I can't remember which one...

Cynthia, I LOVE YOU (and your cookbook) so much. I made these scones last week and ate them all immediately (with my family) using dried currants instead of cranberries. Fabulous! I just made them again, with chopped up baking chocolate (about half a bar) and they are so, so good. Not too sweet, the WW pastry flour is great. I used Earth Balance instead of butter (no dairy here) and have also used coconut oil and both worked great.

These scones are baking nirvana. So easy, so fast, so delicious! My preschooler inhales these, and I gilded the lily by adding some Yummy Yam Frosting for him. Like Angel, I adore them because they're not too sweet. The ww pastry flour gives these the best crumb EVER. Thank you thank you thank you!

Love this recipe and using the blender. Brilliant! I do a scone variation adding two large shredded wheat biscuits and a half cup of candied ginger.

Help! I don't like or have dried cranberries, but I do have lots of fresh (frozen) cranberries.....Will this work? I suspect I'll have to sweeten it a tad more but that's ok. I just need to know if everything else would be the same. I'm dying to try them so please reply :)

Pamela, I have not made these with frozen cranberries before. Why don't you try sweetening the cranberries by themselves in a bowl until they don't taste sour to you. Then fold them into the batter. That way you won't disturb the wet to-dry ratio too much. Good luck. Let us know how they turn out. p.s. currants are a very nice substitute for dried cranberries

I made these this morning and didnot have any dried fruit in the house. I subbed canned organic pumpkin pie filling. 1/2 C filling and decreased buttermilk to 2/3 C. They were wonderfull!

Just finished watching your video.At first I thought having your significant other interrupt while you were shooting was a mistake. Then when your dad entered it just got funnier and I couldn't concentrate on your scone directions. I have to re-run it so that I can try these. Have fun where ever you and your family are going!!!!!
