Preparation Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 25 minutes Yields: Approximately 8 scones


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives (optional, for garnish)


  1. Preheat Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Incorporate Butter: Add the cold butter cubes to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, incorporate the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add Cheese: Mix in the grated cheddar cheese until evenly distributed in the flour mixture.
  5. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and egg. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Do not overmix.
  6. Form Scones: Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently pat it into a 1-inch thick round. Use a round biscuit cutter to cut out scones.
  7. Air Fry: Place the scones in a single layer in the air fryer basket, leaving some space between each. Air fry for 8-10 minutes or until the scones are golden brown and cooked through.
  8. Garnish (Optional): Sprinkle chopped fresh chives on top of the scones for added flavor and visual appeal.
  9. Serve: Allow the scones to cool for a few minutes before serving. They are delicious when served warm.
