DIRECTIONS

  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine all dry ingredients, except sanding sugar, with the cherries (or other dried fruit) in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.
  • Add butter, and mix on medium-low speed until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  • Add white chocolate chips. Add buttermilk and mix until just combined.
  • Turn out the mixtures onto a clean work surface. With hands, pat mixture into two 16" x 4" rectangles that are 1/2 inches high. Score rectangle into 16 triangles.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and transfer to the freezer for at least 2 hours.
  • Heat oven to 350°.
  • Remove dough from the freezer and cut into triangles with a sharp knife.
  • Place scones two inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Brush scones with heavy cream and sprinkle with sanding sugar.
  • Bake until lightly golden, about 15 minutes.
  • Freezing the dough at least two hours keeps scones from spreading too much. Frozen dough will keep for up to 3 weeks.
