Here is a quick and easy buttermilk scone recipe that I adapted from one of my mother in law's recipes. She makes THE BEST scones! I made these last week to bring to a play date. They were extremely quick and very flavorful and tender. The boys and I were still ready to leave the house at 9:15 am and I did not even get up early to make them! Technically, I'm not sure that they can be called scones since I did not cut them before baking, but instead cut them into wedges after baking. Does that make them wedges of buttermilk scone pie instead? Whatever the are, add these to your list of recipes you can make when you have only a little bit of time.
