    Susiecat too's Note:

    This is a delicious, not-too-sweet treat. The cornmeal gives it a pleasant, crunchy bite. The original recipe is from Nick Malgieri's book "How to Bake." I modified it a little bit by replacing some flour with oat bran, increasing the amount of lemon zest, and adding nuts.

      I used 2Bleu's suggestion of substituting processed oats for the oat bran and made these with dried cherries but omitted the nuts. Since there's some evidence that cherries may guard against gout attacks, I've been on the lookout for new ways to incorporate them into my diet, and this is an excellent one. Like mary w., I found they didn't rise that much but I gave them 5 stars anyway because I love the flavor and like that they're not overly sweet.

      I did not have any oat bran but I did have rice bran so I used that instead. Just as described these are not sweet and are crunchy. These did not rise as much as the scones I usually made but I got raves at work for them. Thanks for a great recipe I will use again! Made for 1-2-3 Tag.

      To make oat bran, I processed rolled oats in a food processor until the oats were ground. Then I proceeded by using my food processor and made the whole thing in it. YUM, YUM, YUM!!!! This is one terrific recipe! I used dried mixed fruit (which included cherries) and pecans for the nuts. This recipe is just awesome. One bowl, quick, easy, and out-of-this-world delish!
