Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with vegetable oil cooking spray. Set aside.
In a food processor, combine the scone mix and butter. Pulse until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and add the apricots, salami, and thyme. Add the buttermilk and mix until a sticky dough forms. Place 1/3 cupfuls of the dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake until the tops start to brown slightly, 16 to 18 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, about 20 minutes.
