After searching all over for "the real scone recipe" I synthesized my own. It lends itself well to personalizing with your own additions: sweet spices, dried fruits, peels, extracts, almost all available in the best quality from The Spice House.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and butter in the bowl of a food processor. Process until the consistency of grains of sand.
Remove into bowl. Add dried fruit.
Beat buttermilk, eggs and extracts.
Stir into dry ingredients only until a smooth dough is formed. Do not overbeat.
Drop by heaping tablespoonsful onto a greased baking sheet or parchment paper (I like the parchment paper because there's less clean-up.).
Bake 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.
