These sounded like a wonderful accompaniment for a heavy winter stew. I found them on the Good Housekeeping website.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, black pepper, salt, and baking soda. With pastry blender or two knives used scissor-fashion, cut in margarine or butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. In cup, mix milk and egg; stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until ingredients are blended.
  3. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. With floured hands, pat each half into a 5 1/2-inch round. Cut each round into 6 wedges. With pancake turner, transfer wedges to ungreased large cookie sheet.
  4. Bake scones 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve scones warm. Or, cool on wire rack; reheat if desired.

As written these are as reviewed by someone else, just a little bit dry. If you substitute buttermilk for milk you will find a big difference - hope this works for others.

These scones tasted good, but were a bit on the dry and crumbly side. I served them with honey butter alongside split pea soup. The honey butter made them very delicious, but I probably wouldn't have liked them as much without it...too dry.
