Mimi's Cornmeal Scones

Recipe by Mimi in Maine
READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 8 scones




  • Mix first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Cut in the butter using pastry blended till it looks like fine crumbs.
  • Stir in buttermilk so dough leaves sides of bowl and forms a ball.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead lightly about 10 times.
  • Pat or roll into a 7-inch circle on ungreased cookie sheet that has been sprinkled with cornmeal.
  • Score into 8 wedges, cutting down halfway to the bottom.
  • Bake in 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or till light brown.
  • Immediately remove from sheet and carefully separate wedges.
  • Serve warm.
  • 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.
