Cherry Country Scones recipe
- 6 Tablespoons grated butter (must be kept very cold)
- 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons flour

- Pinch of salt

In a separate bowl, mix eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Mix egg mixture into flour/butter mixture. Fold in cherries. Divide into 8 portions onto a greased baking stone or cookie sheet.
