*For these scones, it is important to note that the Sourdough Discard in this recipe is “fresh” discard, meaning that it is not a discard that has been stored in the fridge and solidified over time – I use a discard that was recently fed.
No sourdough? No problem! This recipe works great with a 1:1 replacement of buttermilk. So replace the 100g of sourdough with 100g of buttermilk and you will be on your way to a delicious scone.
**If you do not have vanilla bean paste, you can swap it out 1:1 for vanilla extract. So this recipe would then have 1 tbsp + 1 tsp of vanilla extract. The dough may end up being a little stickier since the extract is more of a liquid than the paste, so just add an extra dash or two of flour as needed when combining the wet and dry ingredients together.
