Things have been so crazy around here. I have two weeks...yes, TWO WEEKS...to finish up revisions on my dissertation, and I'm a full-time stay-at-home mom to boot. That means my day looks something like this: wake up, chase baby around house, work on dissertation during naptime, chase baby around house, work on dissertation during naptime, chase baby around house, work on dissertation, bed. Whew. Makes me tired just typing it.
When life gets crazy, it's great to have quick and easy recipes on hand. This one fits the bill, and I love it because it's such a treat. Scones are so special and delicious. They made a delicious breakfast on Saturday morning and a wonderful treat during my tea breaks! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do - they are delicious!

Combine 1/3 cup sugar, flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a mixing bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Fold in white chocolate chips; stir in 7 tablespoons buttermilk until just moistened. Knead dough 6 to 8 times. Pat into an 8-inch circle onto an ungreased baking sheet; cut into 8 wedges.
