Buttermilk Scones
This recipe was given to me by a long time friend, back in our "newly married-let's have a tea party" days. I've made it for baby showers, wedding showers, and plenty of breakfast and brunch occasions. I have included some flavor variations at the end, but the original cranberry white chocolate version is the one I'm sharing here.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
  2. Put dry ingredients into a bowl or the bowl of a food processor. Stir briefly to combine.
  3. Using the food processor or two knives, cut in the the 6 Tbsp. of butter. Pulse or chop until mixture forms coarse crumbs. If using a food processor, move the mixture into a mixing bowl.
  4. Gently stir in buttermilk, egg, and vanilla. Only mix until combined. Sometimes I have to add a bit of extra buttermilk at this point (about 1 Tbsp. or so).
  5. Fold in cranberries and white chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop scones onto prepared baking sheet--I use my standard sized cookie scoop and end up with about 2 dozen scones.
  7. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes, or just until scones become firm and begin to turn golden around the edges.
Recipe Notes

Flavor variations: (Use these in place of the cranberries and white chocolate)
