DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425°. Adjust rack in center of oven. Line 1 or 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  • Sift together flour, baking soda and baking powder into a large bowl.
  • Add salt, 2/3 cup sugar, and the cornmeal. Stir with a wooden spoon until combined.
  • Add butter and cut in with a pastry cutter until it is the size of small peas. Using the spoon, mix in cherries.
  • Make a well in the center; add buttermilk. Mix briefly, until ingredients just come together; some loose flour should remain at bottom of bowl.
  • Let the batter stand for 5 minutes.
  • Gently shape the dough into balls about 2 1/4 inches in diameter (they should have a rough, rocky exterior) and place them on the prepared pans about 2 inches apart.
  • Sprinkle the 1/4 cup sugar on top of the scones.
  • Place the scones on the middle rack of the oven and immediately turn the temperature down to 375°.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes, or until the scones are golden. Transfer the scones to a wire rack to cool.
