Recipe Request: Scones

Hey all, I've taken on the task of making brunch for some guests and I'd like to make some scones, but I don't have a great recipe. I'm looking for a nice crunchy exterior with a dense buttery interior (none like the cakey ones from so many bad bakeries). Any one have a favorite?

Also I was wondering what the texture difference was between using cream and buttermilk, I've got some leftover buttermilk and was hoping to use it up, but I don't want to compromise the texture. Any help would be much appreciated.
