REHEAT OVEN to 400° F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture forms coarse crumbs. Add dried cherries and toss. Add egg and buttermilk and stir only until mixture holds altogether. Dough will be sticky; if it seems dry, add another tablespoon of buttermilk. Knead 8 to 10 turns on a lightly floured board, then gently pat into a circle about 9 inches in diameter. Cut into 12 wedges and place on a cookie sheet. Brush with egg wash. Bake for about 12 minutes, until golden. Serve warm with butter and cherry preserves.
