Easy Food Processor Scones: easy and quick to make in your food processor, these flakey scones are perfect for a tea party, breakfast, or snack.
These easy food processor scones are an old favourite of mine. They are my go-to scone recipe. I’ve made them so many times, so I’m very confident in telling you they’re easy and they’re delicious.
I’m joining some of my favourite bloggers today for the Seasonal Simplicity Spring Series. Be sure to check out all the amazing and delicious looking recipes at the end of this post.
Many, many years ago I lived in England for 18 months. During that time I discovered scones. I went for many “cream teas” which is a pot of tea, served with fresh scones, butter, jam, and clotted cream.
Clotted cream is a little hard to come by where I live, but these scones are delicious served with butter and jam, and you can substitute whipped cream, if you’re not self isolating and out of it. 🙁
- 2 cups flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup cold butter
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- plus more cream and sugar for the top
- Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a food processor.
- Add in the cold butter cut into smaller pieces and blend until the mixture looks like crumbs.
- In a bowl beat the egg and stir in the heavy cream. Add to the food processor and pulse until it's completely combined and comes together to form a dough. Be careful not to over mix.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and form into a ball. Cut the ball in half. Form each half into a flat disk about 3/4 inch thick. Cut each disk into 6 wedges. Brush with more heavy cream and sprinkle with some sugar.
- Bake at 425 F on a cookie sheet for about 10 minutes, or until the tips of the wedges start to turn golden brown.
Feel free to add raisins after you remove the dough from the food processor to make raisins scones.

These scones are amazing for a tea party. My favourite would be tea sandwiches, followed by these scones with jam and cream, and some little sweets.
But tea parties aren’t the only time for these delicious scones, they are amazing for breakfast too. And they’re so quick and easy to make in the food processor that you can make a batch first thing in the morning. These are best eaten fresh.
These scones also freeze really well. Freeze them individually before baking, and bake directly from the freezer for that fresh baked taste even when you’re busy. Just add a little more time to the baking if you’re baking from frozen.
With these Easy Food Processor Scones, life really is a party!
