They're so yummy, and go great with coffee or tea, or even just as a snack by themselves.....
2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 and 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup butter (no substitutes)
1 cup chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
3/4 cup buttermilk (I just add 1 Tbsp. lemon juice to regular milk and let it sit for 10 mins)
Directions: Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cranberries. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; gently knead 6-8 times. Divide in half. Pat each into an 8-in. circle. Cut into eight wedges. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks.
