Preheat oven to 400 F. Place all dry ingredients into mixing bowl. Cut up butter and pulse/mix into flour mixture until crumbly (can be done by hand or in food processor). Beat together eggs and buttermilk; add to dry ingredients. Add chopped nuts and/or dried fruits as desired. Drop by large spoonfuls (like scones) onto sprayed baking sheet (or use a silicone pan liner) bake for 20-30 minutes, and let cool. Lower oven temp to 250 F. Slice lengthwise and place (cut side down) on baking sheet. Bake slowly until golden brown and dry.
