Hi all, I want to make the buttermilk scones from how to cook 2. Could I make them the night before up to cutting out and putting on the baking sheet and then leave in the fridge overnight to bake the next day? would they still rise?
thanks in advance

I doubt they would rise as they have a raising agent in the flour which starts working on contact with liquid.
The best solution is to prepare the dry ingredients in advance. Then you can add the wet ingredients and cut out and cook the scones immediately.
