Mimi's Cornmeal Scones

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

This is a savory scone. Serve them warm with butter and Hot Pepper Jelly or honey. They are good with chili, or any bean dish, or just by themselves with the jelly.

I was looking through your recipes and saw this one and knew I had to make them. They went so good with some Chili I had simmering in the crock pot. They were tender and moist with a hint of corn flavor that DH and I loved! I love scones and this one is my new favorite!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl.
  2. Cut in the butter using pastry blended till it looks like fine crumbs.
  3. Stir in buttermilk so dough leaves sides of bowl and forms a ball.
  4. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead lightly about 10 times.
  5. Pat or roll into a 7-inch circle on ungreased cookie sheet that has been sprinkled with cornmeal.
  6. Score into 8 wedges, cutting down halfway to the bottom.
  7. Bake in 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or till light brown.
  8. Immediately remove from sheet and carefully separate wedges.
  9. Serve warm.
  10. NOTE: If the dough is too dry, stir in an additional 1-2 tablespoons of buttermilk; sometimes I will add an extra tablespoon while mixing, but you try it for the first time.
