These scones are perfect with chili and lots of butter--OR pour chili over scones.

Top Review by Iron Bloomers

These are perfect..light, tender & had a nice crunch to the outside due to the cornmeal. Love scones & these will be a regular at meal time. Really a pleasant change from rolls & biscuits
