Corn and Black Pepper Scones

"These scones are a nice change from corn bread or muffins. They are easy to make and go equally well with breakfast or dinner. They are best served warm from baking, but they can be reheated in the oven."

  1. My family enjoyed these. They were a HUGE hit with my DD who ate 2 of the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. First time I've ever made any kind of scones, and they came together very nicely. Easy and fun. The dough has a nice light texture, but not too crumbly and just a hint of sweetness. I think I didn't put in enough salt and pepper because I felt they were lacking just a bit in the flavor department. I will measure those more carefully next time, or consider adding something extra like cumin. Overall a success and will be making these again. Thanks.


I'm married (46 years to the same lucky guy) and have 2 kids, a daughter 41, a son 36, and 2 beautiful grand daughters (8 yrs and 6 yrs). I have always enjoyed cooking and baking, especially breads :) One of my favorite quotes:?? Computers are like air conditioners; they stop working when you open Windows.
