Crisp Cornmeal Scones

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In large bowl whisk together flour, cornmeal.
  1. Add shredded butter to flour mixture; toss to distribute. (Or cut cubed butter into flour mixture with pastry blender until it resembles coarse crumbs). Make well in center of flour-butter mixture. Add 1 cup buttermilk; stir with spoon until moistened. Do not overmix. (If dough appears dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons additional buttermilk.)
  1. Turn dough out onto floured surface. Gently knead by lifting and folding dough, 4 or 5 times, giving a quarter turn after each knead. Roll into 8-inch square, 3/4 inch thick. Cut into 1-1/2- to 2-inch squares. Place squares 1 inch apart on ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with buttermilk; sprinkle coarse sugar. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned; cool scones on a rack. Serve warm. Makes 16 to 25 scones.
