Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with either a silicone mat or parchment paper.
Combine the All-Purpose Flour (1 cup), Baking Powder (1/2 tablespoon), Salt (1/4 teaspoon), and Smoked Paprika (1/4 teaspoon) in a large mixing bowl. Whisk it together to aerate the dry ingredients.
Then pour in the Buttermilk (1/2 cup), Sun-Dried Tomatoes (1/2 cup), and Fresh Basil (1/4 cup). Stir it together just until it comes together into a sticky dough.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and bring it together into a ball. Knead it for a couple of turns to really bring it together. That's all it needs though, don't overwork it. Press the ball of dough down into a flat, even disc. Use a pastry cutter or knife to cut the disc into 8 equal wedges.
Transfer the wedges to the baking sheet and brush them all with the Butter (1 tablespoon). Then let the scones bake for about 15 minutes. They should get golden and crisp on the outside. Take them out and let them cool for a few minutes, then serve! These are amazing any time of day! Enjoy!
