Love anything with buttermilk. This recipe provides the basic scone which I dress up with grated lemon, dried fruits, etc.

I am a lover of scones, and these little goodies made my Sunday morning! I dropped them (about 2 Tbs. of batter) on cookie sheets instead of cutting. These are so good warm with butter and jam! Very light and tasty, too!

This is a great recipe! Really quick and easy. However, I prefer to drop the scones onto the baking sheet by spoonfulls instead of cutting the scones out!
