Air Fryer Cheese Scones

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 12 minutes

Serves: 6 scones

Difficulty: Easy

Course: Breakfast, Snack

Cuisine: English

kcal: Approximately 250 kcal per scone


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk (whole or 2% recommended)
  • 1 large egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Optional: 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder until well combined.
  3. Add the cold and cubed unsalted butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese, making sure it is evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
  5. Create a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the milk. Gently stir the ingredients together until a soft dough forms. Avoid overmixing to ensure tender scones.
  6. Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times until it comes together.
  7. Pat the dough into a circle about 1 inch thick.
  8. Use a sharp knife or a biscuit cutter to cut the dough into 6 equal-sized wedges or rounds.
  9. Line the air fryer basket with parchment paper or lightly grease it to prevent sticking.
  10. Place the scones in the air fryer basket, leaving space between each scone.
  11. Brush the tops of the scones with beaten egg to achieve a beautiful golden brown finish.
  12. Optional: Sprinkle chopped fresh parsley over the scones for added color and flavor.
  13. Air fry the Cheese Scones at 375°F (190°C) for 10-12 minutes or until they are golden brown and cooked through. The exact cooking time may vary depending on your air fryer model, so keep an eye on them to avoid overcooking.
  14. Once done, carefully remove the scones from the air fryer and let them cool slightly before serving.

Note: These scones are best enjoyed fresh and warm, but they can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days and reheated in the air fryer for a few minutes to maintain their delicious texture.
