In a medium mixing bowl, whisk dry ingredients together. Cut in the butter. Work into flour mixture with fingertips until it resembles a course meal. Add cranberries. Mix. Add buttermilk. Blend with a fork just until a dough forms.
Turn out onto a floured work surface and gently knead into a ball. Flatten into a disk and roll with a rolling pin to 1/2 inch thickness. Slice into wedges and transfer to a baking sheet.
Bake on center rack until tops are golden, about 10 minutes.
