Recipe for 4th of July scones

With cherries, blueberries, and white chocolate, these scones are packed with flavor! I used dried blueberries, and they add a yummy chewiness that is a perfect balance to the juicy cherries.

I love sprinkling the tops of my scones with sugar, but you can use a simple glaze instead. Or you can just omit that step, they will still be delicious.
