Late Night Scones

Over the weekend I was in the mood for something flaky and yummy, Cherry Scones sounded like they would do just the trick. This recipe was super easy and totally satisfied my need for a late night snack with a glass of chocolate milk. Enjoy!

Cherry Scones
Servings: 12

2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup dried cherries, thinly sliced

1. Preheat oven to 400 and coat a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Mix well and set aside. In another bowl, whisk the egg, buttermilk, and butter together.
3. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until combined.
4. Fold in cherries.
5. Drop 12 2-inch mounds of batter onto the cookie sheet about 1 inch apart and bake for about 12-15 minutes until the tops are almost golden.
