Sift the flour, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar, sugar, and cinnamon into a medium size bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until mixture forms crumbs. Beat egg and fruit with buttermilk in a smaller bowl and add to the flour mixture, stirring to make a soft dough. Place dough onto a flowered surface and roll or pat out into a 1/2 inch thick round. Cut into 8 triangles. Heat griddle over low to medium heat. Sprinkle lightly with flour. Bake triangles about 5 min. or until the underside is golden grown. Turn over and finish baking 4 to 5 minutes longer.
